I'll let others who are more experienced respond to your question  
about proper configuration.

But if you are concerned about security, encrypt your password - then  
it doesn't matter if others can see it. Just add "?action=crypt" to  
the URL of any page on any pmwiki website to get a form to generate an  
encrypted version of your password.

Use encrypted passwords in your config.php and anywhere else that you  
need to put a password.
