[Pmwiki-users] Passwording

The $DefaultPasswords entries can be arrays.  So, in local.php:

   $DefaultPasswords['admin'] = array(crypt('sitewidepassword'));

sets the sitewide password, while adding a line to local/Group.php:


adds an additional admin password for pages in Group.

Of course, if you don't like having the passwords in cleartext in
your local.php files, you can use PmWiki's ?action=crypt feature to
put the encrypted string directly into the array (see PmWiki.PasswordsAdmin).
