The drupal user page accessible on any PLC (e.g. http://PLCURL/?
q=user) is not explicitly exposed to regular users, but indeed
knowledgeable users can find this page. Drupal's default setting is
to permit visitors to create "drupal" accounts from this page.
Obviously, this does not make sense for MyPLC and it should be disabled.
It is easy to disable by simply logging in as an admin and going to
the following URL:
The resolution is to change the setting at the above page from:
"Visitors can create accounts and no administrator approval is
"Only site administrators can create new user accounts."
and then at the bottom of the page saving the settings.
With this change it wont be possible for anonymous users to create
It would be great if we could figure out how to programmatically
change the default setting to the "only site administrators can create
new user accounts" so this manual step via the web interface is not
required when doing a MyPLC installation.
