FS#1498 Escape issue with PunBB auth
When using the Configuration manager plugin with the auth backend already set as PunBB, it seems to double escape (or something like it) the single quotes.
Saving the configuration result in a DokuWiki error, because local.php now contain this:
$conf['authtype'] = '\'punbb\'; define(\'PUN_ROOT\',\'/my_punbb_path/forums/\')';
$conf['authtype'] = 'punbb'; define('PUN_ROOT','/my_punbb_path/forums/')';
As a work-around it could help putting those lines rather into ./conf/local.protected.php ...
The config manager does not handle defines. This *has* to be configured in ./conf/local.protected.php
