PmWiki hasn't used HTTP authentication by default for quite some time,
it uses session-based authentication.  (The "sessionauth.php" script
is really only for PmWiki v1.0 and earlier.)

So, it must be something else that is causing the problem.  I
suspect your webserver is not configured properly for PHP sessions.
I suspect it's not able to save the session data properly

Can you set "$EnableDiag=1;" in the config.php file so that I
can quickly check the PHP configuration?
