Hmm. There is a section "Authentication Settings" but no explicit checkbox for enabling or disabling ACLs visible.The first checkbox in Section "Authentication Settings" ("Use access control lists") is the box to check. It has a "useacl" at the left top corner for me. Next entry is "Autogenerate passwords" ("autpoasswd").
There is no such checkbox here (see the attached screenshot) ???
[...] Why does the configuration manager not work w/o ACLs?It's a feature. See <http://www.dokuwiki.org/config:useacl> please :-)
got it. frank
