I don't know of a way to do that via the main configuration file
config.php. But I think you can use a page customization file -- tough
it is not recommended to set passwords in this way. Please take a look

for an explanation why it's not advised to set passwords via a page
customization file. (Look at sections "Authentication" and the faq
section "Why shouldn't passwords ...").

If I'm not mistaken that page also describes a way to override a group
(edit) password in a page customization file (see section "Preventing
group-Level configurations" and the faq section "Isn't that processing
order ..."): In your page customization file:

1. if you need it, include the group customization file with

2. set your password

3. prevent loading of group customization: $EnablePGCust=0;

Hope that helps
