Dear Patrick,

I am using pmwiki-2.2.0-beta63. Please find below a copy of what could be
relevant parts of my config.php

$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = crypt('something');
$DefaultPasswords['read'] = crypt('something');
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('something');
$DefaultPasswords['rss'] = crypt('something');

##  If you want uploads enabled on your system, set $EnableUpload=1.
##  You'll also need to set a default upload password, or else set
##  passwords on individual groups and pages.  For more information
##  see PmWiki.UploadsAdmin.
$EnableUpload = 1;
$UploadMaxSize = 10000000;
$DefaultPasswords['upload'] = crypt('something');
$EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1 ;

##  The feeds.php script enables ?action=rss, ?action=atom, ?action=rdf,
##  and ?action=dc, for generation of syndication feeds in various formats.
if ($action == 'rss') include_once("$FarmD/scripts/feeds.php");   # RSS 2.0
if ($action == 'rss') $EnablePageListProtect = 0;

## Define usernames and passwords.
$AuthUser['admin'] = crypt('somethingelse');

## -- ZAP v2007.4 --------------------------------------
$ZAPmailmode = true;
$ZAPconfig['mail'] = true;
$FmtPV['$Today'] = 'strftime("d, %Y", $page["time"])';
$FmtPV['$VisitorIP'] = '$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]';

## Set passwords
#$DefaultPasswords['read'] = 'id:*';
#$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = 'id:*';
#$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = 'id:admin';
#$DefaultPasswords['zap'] = 'id:*';

## protect sources
$HandleAuth['source'] ='admin';

I hope that is enough to help me locate what could be the problem.
Kind regards,

Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is
no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and
upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again.
Wanderer, there is no road-- Only wakes upon the sea. -- Antonio Machado
