On the demo Redmine instance ( and on the personal test sites (*, basic authentication fails both with the username/password and the API key method. Only public projects can be accessed/listed using the REST API. Since on local instances it works fine, this is likely an issue with the server configuration.

This is an apache configuration issue. You can use the X-Redmine-API-Key header anyway, it works fine.
