Check out http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Passwords.  You'll notice the
first sentence says support for this is built-in.  Basically you need to
read through that page to determine how to *set* passwords (whether for the
entire site [PmWiki/Passwords#faq or
PmWiki/PasswordsAdmin#settingsitewidepasswords], a group
[PmWiki/Passwords#groupattr], or an individual page
[PmWiki/Passwords#pageattr]) and then whenever you try to edit that page you
will be automatically prompted for the password.

Nothing at all you you need to do beyond install straight vanilla PmWiki and
then set passwords.

Both the PmWiki/Passwords and PmWiki/PasswordsAdmin should be considered
required reading for anybody doing anything with passwords in pmwiki.
