Default Authentication

I wanted to upload pictures to an image gallery. I've seen somewhere an example of uploading but the authentication doesn't work.

This is an example of how i do my authentication

  if(!isset($PHP_AUTH_USER)) {
   Header("WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=\"Mijn Realm\"");
   Header("HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized");
   echo "Tekst om te sturen als de gebruiker op Annuleren klikt.\n";
  } else {
   echo "Hallo $PHP_AUTH_USER.<P>";
   echo "Je gebruikte $PHP_AUTH_PW als je password.<P>";

When i run this the readme file says that a login window should be displayed but i get a message "Unauthorized"
I read something about authentication where i have to install PHP on Apache module or something ?
Can someone clear this out for me ??

Thx in advance

I have run into this a few times myself, I used a similar code to what you have posted but I found it better to password protect directories using .htaccess some think this is not the way to go but I find .htaccess is a quick and painless solution.
