cc4f163c 4In order to use this plugin, you must first activate it using
5conf.pl and then you must change the config/config.php files
6permissions to 660. This file must be owned by the user who you
7want to have access to this plugin (only one user allowed) and
7b17e364 8the group must be the group of the user who is running php. This
9authentication method requires posix support in php and doesn't
33c308e5 10work, if user's id equals to 0.

13admins into the plugin folder with the names of the users that
daa192a8 14you want to allow the use of the plugin.

cc4f163c 16Use this plugin at your own risk, and always remember to make a

19Order of authentication checks
21When plugin checks if user can use it, it first checks
22plugins/administrator/admins file. If file does not exist, plugin
23checks config/admins. If plugin can't find admins file, it tries to
24use uid based authentication.
