Hello. Your WikiGroup has a @lock password set, that is to prevent anyone but 
the admin from editing the whole group. You can change the password by opening 
the page YourGroup.GroupAttributes?action=attr and enter "clear" (without the 
quotes) in the edit and attribute text fields.

See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Passwords for more information.

Note that the Site.* group contains parts of the site interface and is 
normally "edit" protected, and the SiteAdmin.* group contains passwords and is 
"edit" and also "read" protected.
