Default Wiki Auth - 12-05-2009

I'm trying to install jk_botti, but I can't get into the wiki.
I don't have a username or password to put in the prompt.

The user and pass are showed in to the prompt.

Why are you requiring a log in? That's what I'm more wondering about.

It actually seems to defeat the purpose of a login prompt if you're going to give a username and pass.
Maybe, the wiki needs to be updated?

Most of the bots do not expect such a login page and also they have no clue that the user and pass are displayed as a message, so this helps a bit.

Attempts were made and it broke things so Onno made the directory require a universal username/password and there has been only one attack (human?) since. We used to get 75 attacks a day.

Myself I provide an offline copy(FritzBot) for those who can't handle simple instructions.
