[pmwiki-users] Problems with login.Troubleshooting?

Our wiki has a simple login requiring a password to be able to edit. The
problem is that sometimes can't login. When they type the password
nothing happens (when you've logged in the edit menu should be visible).
It usually works with Firefox, though it might take a few tries. In IE
and Chrome it usually doesn't work.

I don't know how to troubleshoot this. The server is quite old, and runs
out of RAM sometimes. It also runs a quite old version of Apache and
PHP, so I suspect that might be part of the trouble. We're moving to a
new and updated server quite soon, but I'd like to know whether there's
anything I can do to make our website stable.

Is there something in our config-file (attached below) that might cause

Any suggetions? Please?
