Configuring PHPCI

The PHPCI configuration on the server is automatically generated into the phpci/PHPCI/config.yml file during installation. One might need to also edit the file manually.

For example, to disable authentication, one could log into phpci and go into the settings to disable it. But if you have already set up a username/password pair and have forgotten the password, and if the server is on a local network, and it’s not sending the forgot password email, then editing the config file manually would be handy. To do so, just edit the phpci section in the config file (which is in yaml format), and add

phpci:
    authentication_settings:
      state: 1
      user_id: 1

where you can get the user_id by logging into the mysql database and selecting your user ID from the users table in the phpci database.
