Thanks Edwin - IT seems to be a server problem that is still a mystery to
us.  BUT I do have a "fix"

Well, I was able (with a bit of nudging) to go back to PHP 5.2.10  and now
things seem to work as expected.  It seems PHP 5.3.0 has some problems.

Thought you should know.

Sorry this is off topic, but I have run into a bit of trouble and need some

I have been using Pmwiki for many years and have no major problems *(until
now) - thanks to the great help I have always recieved.  I was forced to
upgrade to windows server 2008 and use php 5.3.0 and apach 2.2.11.  Now I am
having trouble with authentication.  I have modified php.ini to have
sessions enabled and create paths to dirs  in "session.save_path".  The
files for the sessions are being created, so permissions are not a problem.

I am asked to authenticate on every password protected page even after I
have given a correct password.  I can am being allowed to edit SiteAdmin
pages, so I am recognized as an admin.  I have installed a new fresh copy of
PmWiki and only set the admin password and still have the problem.  I have
tried two separate browsers and have seen the cookies in FF.

Has anyone else had this problem?  If, so, please help.
