I have several tikiwikis (v 3.0 beta 4) on the same domain. Both behind the same .htaccess protected directory. The goal was to setup a working instance of InterTiki between these two Tiki's.
By way of example
A few setup issues have been noted (these details have now been added to the InterTiki documentation). Most notably is correctly specifying the location of "/remote.php" for the above case. For our above example to following is req'd:
On the master, I have successfully made contact using either the IP shown in the Apache logs, or by simply using "127.0.0.1" in this case.
Likewise (also added to InterTiki docs) there was some oddity related to order of events with how the server info was being plugged into MySQL tiki_preferences interlist table. I have not properly tracked this down so will not go into it further at this time.
Also of note (for another bug or support request) is that I am unable to get InterTiki on the master to log out anything.
Note: InterTiki operates as designed and is simply unable to get behind an Apache Basic Auth wall. However, hard-coding in setCredentials line for the XML_RPC_Client should work in this case but does not.
After getting setup dialed in like above, the client received the following message:
XMLRPC Error: 5 - Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required)
Some digging into /lib/userlib.php finds the calls for setting up the XML_RPC_Client at lines (around) 228, 2812, 2831, 2860 and 2905. Looking into the XML_RPC_Client class in /lib/pear/xml/rpc.php shows that there exists a setCredentials($username, $password) method. The setCredentials method exists to allow for RPC calls to get through Basic Apache Authentication.
I went ahead and modified the clients (and eventually the master's) /lib/userlib.php in the above locations with a simple addition of:
This time, when logging in from the client, the response was:
XMLRPC Error: 5 - Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily)
And with that I am stuck. It seems like (as a workaround hack for the time being) the ability is there in the XML_RPC_Client methods to get through an Apache Basic Auth, but the return code is weird at best.

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
