Because in our webserversetup PHP is installed as a FastCGI Proxy basic authentication will not work in its usual way. There is however a workaround. First add a .htaccess file with following code in it:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> 
RewriteEngine on \n
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]
</IfModule>


Next add the following line to your script right before the authentication:

list($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'], $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW']) = explode(':' , base64_decode(substr($_SERVER['HTTP_AUTHORIZATION'], 6)));

Now your script should work with basic authentication.
