It is good for users themselves to be able to create an account.
However, sometimes, it is desirable to disable this feature and to give
the account creation capabiblity to WikiSysop only. Hope
there will be a system variable to control the switch between the two modes.
Further info: it is very desirable for WikiSysop to be able to
edit and delete user accounts.
This case warrants a bit of STFW, to be frank.
For renaming users, check out the Renameuser extension ([[Special:Version]]).
For the permissions deal, modify $wgGroupPermissions as appropriate. See the
comments in includes/DefaultSettings.php.
Just add these lines to LocalSettings.php:
$wgGroupPermissions['*' ]['createaccount'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user' ]['createaccount'] = false;
That works fine.
