I’m getting prompted for a password when I publish

    Help !
    I login to my WordPress as admin….full rights.
    I select a post to edit, or add a new post.
    When I ‘save’ or ‘publish’, I get prompted for a username and password that allegedly comes from my URL followed by ‘wp-admin’.
    My admin pwd doesn’t work. No other pwd works.
    Then I get an ‘access denied’ page.
    I can hit my back button and get back to my WP dashboard.
    I can still login to my site etc….but can not post or edit.

    The small window that comes up says that my url at Magic (whatever Magic is) is requeting me to login.

    Anyone have any ideas?????

    I did check with my host tech support, and they confirmed there is nothing wrong with my site itself, and they suggested the fault must be somewhere in WP.
