At the moment, I'm the only one! Until I get it all sorted that is.
Then we have to decide if it's going to stay where it is - it's a free hosting site so nobody "owns" it, but Rich's idea was to set up some form of community led/owned/administered "system" which would take control of all the stuff he wanted to offload (for want of a better word) for various reasons. If is stays where it is, fine. Otherwise, we can easily move it in it's current form to another site hosting a DokuWiki setup.
The existing Wiki dump file, which Rich supplied me with, has everyone's details up to the 27th July 2017, so I might be able to add everyone back in. Passwords will need to be changed as they are "hashed" (probably md5 or similar) in the existing wiki database tables. The good news is, I've been an administrator of DokuWiki sites before - at least three contracts and one permanent position, plus my own QDOSMSQ wiki is also DokuWiki. (And will be getting a long overdue face lift to make it better on phones etc too!)
So, in summary, existing logins but new passwords
UPDATE: I've just had a look at the administration side of the DokuWiki system. There is a bulk-import option on usernames, so all I need is a login name, a full name, an email address and whether the user is admin or not. I can get all of that with a script against the current MySQL database easily enough.
Once I run the import, there will be an email sent, hopefully, to the email address given, with details of the new system generated password. The users can login and click the 'change profile' link to give themselves a new one, if they wish. I (or any administrator) will not ever see the generated passwords, nor the emails that go out.
