Hi everyone

I am hacking my way through something unrelated to this post.. but needed to stop and (real quick) pass-protect a page to use it to run some quick (*admin-only*) scripts on a shared host. ..and I see now how poor is my understanding of what seems like basic stuff. As a start for my quick understanding to pass protect a page, I used the "Example #6 Basic HTTP Authentication example", from here:
..which is just this:

if (!isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'])) {
    header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My Realm"');
    header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
    echo 'Text to send if user hits Cancel button';
} else {
    echo "<p>Hello {$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']}.</p>";
echo "<p>You entered {$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW']} as your password.</ p>";

..and no matter what i type in the authentication dialogue that pops up.. then after I submit it.. it just keeps looping forever popping up the dialogue.. I.e. I never get past the authenticate dialogue to see this line executed:
echo "<p>Hello {$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']}.</p>";

What am I missing?

Thanks for your bothering to help with this,
