You do need to define acls, see


or in your wiki.

e.g. if you set

acl_rights_before = u'UserName:read,write,revert,delete,admin'
acl_rights_default = u'UserGroup:read,write,revert,delete'

then the user with the name UserName has the before right and is allowed
to change acl settings on a page by the admin right.

Only users which are listed on the page UserGroup have
read,write,revert,delete rights on default. If one (UserName) has added
an #acl line on the page this overwrites the default settings.
