checked the supplied link. most interestingly Main.HomePage?action=attr shows the edit password set by site. still (:if auth edit:) evaluates to true for non-logged in users while (:if auth admin:) evaluates to false.

can you post the contents of your entire local/config.php? (minus clear passwords, of course)
sadly my servers are running php versions 5.2.6 and 5.2.12, so I cannot verify if this is a 5.3 related problem. to verify or falsify that faulty crypt implementation in php 5.3 theory, you could use md5 or sha-1 encrypted passwords stored in a .htpasswd (see the Passwd section in http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/AuthUser).

I notice there are some discussions about the new crypt() in php 5.3 and doubt if it's related to the issue I am having. Here is the test pmwiki I set up http://newsletter.vaughanpl.info/pmwiki/pmwiki.php. Can someone provide a help? Do I have to downgrade to php 5.2?
