    2323    unless they are very small of unless someone asked for this.

     25  * Some commands tell me I'm not allowed to use them, why ? 
     26   
     27    Some commands refuse to work when launched as a normal user, 
     28    and output a message saying "You're not allowed to use this 
     29    command." This is because their use is reserved to PyKota 
     30    Administrators. A PyKota Administrator is any user allowed 
     31    to read the pykotadmin.conf file. Beware : any user who can 
     32    read this file can connect to PyKota's database in read+write 
     33    mode, so take care of not opening a breach when modifying 
     34    the permissions on this file. 
     35     
     36  * What permissions should I use on PyKota's configuration files ?    
     37   
     38    It's probably best to do this : 
     39     
     40        $ chown pykota.pykota pykota.conf pykotadmin.conf 
     41        $ chmod 640 pykota.conf 
     42        $ chmod 600 pykotadmin.conf 
     43         
     44    Then the user 'pykota' will be the only PyKota Administrator     
     45    (with user 'root' of course), but all members of the 'pykota' 
     46    group will be allowed to use unrestricted PyKota commands 
     47    like repykota. 
     48     
    2549  * How can I limit my users to N pages per day (month/year) ?
