 Setting the initial user name and password
+==========================================
 
-  Because Zope is managed through the web, user names and passwords must be
-  used to assure that only authorized people can make changes to a Zope
-  installation.

-  Some user name and password is needed to "bootstrap" the creation of
-  normal managers of your Zope site.  This is accomplished through the
-  use of the file 'inituser'.  The first time Zope starts, it will detect
-  that no users have been defined in the root user folder.  It will search
-  for the 'inituser' file and, if it exists, will add the user defined
-  in the file to the root user folder.

-  The emergency user password must be defined outside the application
-  user interface.  It is defined in the 'access' file located
-  in the Zope directory.  It should be readable only by the user
-  as which your web server runs.

-  In order to provide a somewhat higher level of security, various

 Format of 'inituser' and 'access'
+---------------------------------
 
-  A password file should consist of a single line of the form:

 Setting permissions on the var directory.
+-----------------------------------------
 
-  You need to set permissions on the Zope var directory.
-  Zope needs to read and write data from its var directory. Before
-  running Zope you should ensure that you give adequate permissions
-  to the Zope var directory for the userid Zope will run under.

-  Depending on how you choose to run Zope you will need to give
-  different permissions to the var directory.  If you use Zope with an
-  existing web server, it will probably run Zope as 'nobody'. In this
-  case 'nobody' needs read and write permissions to the var directory.
