[pmwiki-users] CleanUrls/mod_rewrite in subwiki's

Hi all,

I'm trying to apply the cleanurl's recipe (mod_rewrite/.htaccess) on a 
test pmwiki environment. The URL-rewriting in itself is working 
allright, so I have e.g.:


...for the top-level installation, and:


...for a second (sub)wiki running on the farm. All this is nice, but 
whenever I click a link or reload a page in the second wiki I have to 
reauthenticate (authuser/ldap). This doesn't occur in the top-level 
wiki. The .htaccess I have in /wiki/test/.htaccess looks like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /wiki/test/    # The 'test' subwiki is in 
# Send requests without parameters to index.php.
RewriteRule ^$          index.php  [L]
# Send requests for index.php to index.php.
RewriteRule ^index.php$ index.php  [L]
# Send requests to index.php, appending the query string part.
RewriteRule ^([A-Z0-9?-?].*)$ index.php?n=$1  [QSA,L]

It looks like the authentication cookie somehow isn't sticking because 
of the rewriting. Has anyone ever encountered this problem? Any 
suggestions for a solution or debugging?

Thanks in advance,
