Subject: self - registering - How It Works - or at least how i've gotten it to work 
Create a blank text file (called mine passwd.txt)
Place the text file somewhere in the elog directory structure
(I placed mine in c:\elog\passwd.txt because i wanted to use it globally 
for all logbooks.  I believe this forum places it in \elog\logbooks\forum 

For the Elogd.cfg:

; general options
Password file = c:\elog\passwd.txt
Admin user = user1
Self register = 1
Theme = default


logbook tabs = 1
tab cellpadding = 2
SMTP host =
URL = http://myelog
Password file = c:\elog\passwd.txt
Admin user = user1
Self register = 1

For the first time logging in, Click Login from the Forum Pages, then at 
the login screen, click Register as New User
Fill out all the appropriate information

Login name: user1 (seems to be case sensative)
Full name: First User
Automatic email notification:  (box checked)
Password:  password (seems to be case sensative)
Retype password:  password (seems to be case sensative)

Then click Save

If you open up the passwd.txt file you should see something like:


Some other examples based on what info you provided during the 

user1::First   (password left blank)
user1:cGFzc3dvcmQ=:First (NO Auto email Notify)
user1::First User::all (password and email address left blank)

If you leave the Full Name blank then the logged in user will not be 
reflected correctly in the logbook.

Hope this helps.
