[Ovmsdev] Server Authentication Confusion

We’re trying to set up an OVMS server and I’m puzzled by the authentication process. After (making an attempt at) following the server setup instructions (https://docs.openvehicles.com/en/stable/server/index.html <https://docs.openvehicles.com/en/stable/server/index.html>) we’re seeing these message after starting the server:

2022-12-30 00:18:03.533595 +0000 info  OVMS::Server::AuthDrupal: - - - Periodic Drupal maintenance
DBD::mysql::db do failed: Table 'openvehicles.users' doesn't exist at plugins/system/OVMS/Server/DbDBI.pm line 181.

After a bit more poking, it appears that the only functional authentication module wants to talk to a Drupal site (presumably to populate the users table). Do we need to set up a Drupal instance, or is it possible manually populate the openvehicles.users table?

Thanks, Doug
