Multiuser Mode

VideoDB can optionally work with multiple users. To enable this, go to the configuration screen and check the Multiuser Support checkbox.

Logging in

When multiuser mode is enabled a new menu item Login appears. Use your username and password to login. You must have cookies enabled or it won't work! When you check the stay logged in checkbox the cookie will not expire after the current browser session.

On database creation an initial user with administration rights is created:

Username: admin
Password: admin

Add and modify users

Follow the link Usermanagement from the configuration screen.

Be sure to change the password of the admin user!

The following user permissions are available:

  • View all Users with this flag are allowed to see movies of all users in the videodb system.
  • Modify all Users with this flag are allowed to change any detail of each movie in the videodb system.
  • View adult You can define movie genres which are not suitable for minors and should be hidden from all users which do not have this permission flag set.

  • Permissions This button links to the user to user permissions, where you can decide what rights a user has on another users movies.
