Running in insecure mode
As of July 8, 2022, insecure mode no longer exists as a server option.
Insecure mode used to be an option for running the AAGRINDER server without requiring passwords. This was used for quicker testing during development, as well as for easier server installation (since checking a password required a MySQL database but in insecure mode the database is not required at all).
After the MySQL database dependency was removed on July 8, 2022, the insecure mode option was removed as well.
There is now a new feature intended for quicker testing during development: if a user's password hash is manually changed to an empty string, the server can be configured to automatically log in to this user without needing to type a username or password.
