You may have an error somewhere, since as you have it, password01 should
definitely not be enabling users to edit.
But you also have a misunderstanding: if you want password02 to enable
editing of pages that are read-protected, you also have to also make
password02 a read-password.
Maybe you should review http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PasswordsAdmin?
(Sorry about the top-post, previously - stupid computers.)
We have something like this in our config.php files:
$PmWikiAdminPassword = crypt('password03');
$PmWikiReadEditUploadPassword = crypt('password02');
$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = $PmWikiAdminPassword;
$DefaultPasswords['read'] = array(crypt('password01'),
$DefaultPasswords['attr'] = $PmWikiAdminPassword;
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = $PmWikiReadEditUploadPassword;
$EnableUpload = 1;
$UploadUrlFmt = $ScriptUrl.'/uploads';
$DefaultPasswords['upload'] = $PmWikiReadEditUploadPassword;
