We discovered a problem to day on our Dakar installation regarding user registration. I installed 4.1.2, but the problem also shows up there also:

Our system is set up to authenticate via LDAP and is therefore not using TWiki internal authentication. Basically, the directories are locked by the web server (apache) and when one is trying to access it goes out to LDAP via the apache LDAP module and authenticates the user.

This worked in the past, but now the following happens: When a user registers, instead of the usual line:

  • <wikiname> - <loginname> - <date>
the following is inserted into TWikiUsers
  • <wikiname> - <wikiname> - <date>
and from then on, of course, the mapping from user to wikiname does not work.

Note that the webserver correctly puts the loginname into the CGI object.

As far as I can tell this is working correctly.

Can you provide the relevant settings from LocalSite.cfg?
