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?
