How to reproduce

  1. Bootstrap
    • create an fresh installation of the foswiki
    • bootstrap it (i'm using tools/ for the testing)
    • set the internal admin password
    • save
    • check the working wiki
    • quit the browser
  2. Reconfig
    • in the configure -> Security -> Login
    • set the {LoginManager} to none
    • save
  3. try the result
    • can't create any topic, nor edit any (the CHANGE access is missing for the WikiGuest
    • can't access the configure to restore back
    • completely locked out - need manually from the shell restore the !LocalSite.cfg
  4. the needs
    • warn the user about the ACL for the WikiGuest, because he can't edit any his old topic
    • somewhat allow to access the configure

The setting of "none" is documented as allowing full access with no restrictions.
  • none - Don't support logging in, all users have access to everything.

  1. Foswiki::Configure::Auth should just return and not throw any errors if LoginManager is set to 'none'.
  2. Foswiki::Access::TopicACLAccess should allow all access when LoginManager is set to 'none'

TopicACLReadOnlyAccess should probably still enforce read-only.

Note there is another related error: bin/login script throws an error:
Foswiki detected an internal error - please check your Foswiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

Can't locate object method "login" via package "Foswiki::LoginManager"
