By default, PmWiki uses Basic HTTP auth (ie. browser pops up a username
and password prompt). Not sure why it's not working for you, but some web
server set ups don't support it. Didn't work for me either.

You could try adding:


...to local.php. This will get PmWiki to prompt for a password in a web
based form instead.
