using php authentication box
header( 'WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Private"' );
header( 'HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized' );
echo 'Authorization Required.';
seems not to set the $PHP_AUTH_USER and $PHP_AUTH_PW globals why can that be?

$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] and $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW']
as your server may not have registered the global variables... I have however in some cases had problems using this on certain server setups, so I generally try (where possible) to use my own login system using HTML forms (that way I know theres not going to be any problems.
Some useful information: http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.http-auth.php
