VM users

Postby apelec » Mon May 23, 2016 2:40 pm

I am a little confused with the way VM handles users.

When VM is first install and configured am I given a user name? if so I did not make a note of it. How do I find that out?

Now that I have setup a couple of users on mySQL who owns the Calendars already created? how do I find out?

When VM is started, what user does it assumes?

thanks

Hi apelec, have you found the instructions page yet for configuring user accounts and shared calendars? Here's the link:
http://www.vueminder.com/sharing.php

User names are defined in MySQL Server. VueMinder does not assume a default user name. The user name is specified in the Sharing Options when you configure VueMinder to connect to the server.

You can find out which user owns a shared calendar by opening the Calendar Properties (double-click the calendar's name). There should be a label near the bottom of the Calendar Properties window indicating who owns the calendar. If you see a "Sync" tab, then the current username specified in the Sharing Options is the user that owns the calendar, since only the calendar owner can change the calendar permissions and sharing settings of the calendar.
