[pmwiki-users] Changing passwords with forms

I use htpasswd, but I have never gotten admin, admins, or any admin 
group to work other than hard coded in config.php

If you have hints let me know.

If I recall correctly
htpasswd says it uses 'admin' as the group to show the full user list on 
its page, but authuser or pmwiki generally uses 'admins'

I have never gotten htpasswd to display the full user list, and I have 
never gotten pmwiki to display any admin page to anyone other than the 
user admin/or any user if they log in with the hard coded admin password.

I even tried removing the password from config.php
