thanks 4 the quick answer. I am a bit confused thou .

I created the file Site.AuthUser in /wiki.d and added myself in the editors 
group : 
-sh-3.00$ cat Site.AuthUser
marco: @editors

Then I went to the page attr. I wanted to set ( namely, ) and have set 
the read password to @authors ... but it asks me 4 username & password (which 
are not mine ...) .
I then tried the "per group" approach on the Site.AuthUser file :
-sh-3.00$ cat Site.AuthUser
@editors: marco
with the same results.

Then I tried creating the Test.GroupAttributes and have set the read password 
via pmwiki 
( to 
@editors ...  with the same result : 

-sh-3.00$ cat Test.GroupAttributes
version=pmwiki-2.1.beta30 ordered=1 urlencoded=1
agent=Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051010 
Firefox/1.0.4 (Ubuntu package 1.0.7)

What am I missing ???
