Hi all. I'm a newbie to phpWiki, but experienced in Unix/Linux/PHP/MySQL for yonks. I'm trying to set up phpWiki for the first time, with authentication so that each month I can publish a login/password combination for that month. The easiest way seems to be to use "file" authentication, and I'm trying to persuade it to work, initially without encryption as I'm having a struggle. My settings are.......

ENCRYPTED_PASSWD = false
ALLOW_ANON_USER = false
ALLOW_ANON_EDIT = false
ALLOW_BOGO_LOGIN = false
ALLOW_USER_PASSWORDS = true
USER_AUTH_ORDER = "File"
USER_AUTH_POLICY = first-only
AUTH_USER_FILE = /srv/www/htdocs/scimitarweb/public_html/wiki/wikiusers
AUTH_USER_FILE_STORABLE = false

and my "wikiusers" file contains a single line.....

Yet when I try to log on with this login/password combination I get rejected with "Invalid Password"

Anyone got any suggestions.

Thanks in anticipation!
