How do you actually use this component? I installed it and it doesn't appear to do anything. Do I have to call some function in addition to require_once( "extensions/BasicAutoAuth.php" ); ?

First, your web server has to perform HTTP Basic Authentication for your wiki. The extension will then try to log you into your wiki using the username and password provided by this authentication. For this reason, make sure the given username exists in MediaWiki and that the password matches the one for the Basic Authentication. Further details are explained in the extension's description page. --Nguyenh 11:51, 18 December 2006 (UTC)
