Hi Mike,

I think there is a sample user table in the "database starter kit" on the web assist solutions page. I think it costs about 9.99 but it comes with interactive videos that teach you how to create a database using mysql gui tools, which has a nice user friendly interface meaning you won't need to no much mysql (yet). It also comes with three helpful databases. One of them contains a user table.

In terms of the userLevel field read this post below

  I had a bit of confusion with this too.

Anyway I worked out that the solution recipie uses two different sites.

The first section of the solution recepie "security assist wizard tutoral" uses the users table that is unfortunately not available for download. This section of the tutorial describes the process of allowing users to register themselves on the site.

The second section of the solution recipie "access levels" uses a visitor table and has it's pages created by data assist. This is for if you want to control user registration and assign password and user names for user. When creating the pages this way you would need to assign SHAI ENCRYPTION during the data assist wizard and afterwards use security assist wizard to create the login and logout pages.

But back to the main issue you can recreate the user table like this

log into mysql adminstrator>
create a new table>

the table field look roughly like this

userID Not Null INTEGER Auto Increment PRIMARY KEY
firstname Not Null VARCHAR(60)
lastname Not Null VARCHAR(60)
username Not Null VARCHAR(60)
password Not Null VARCHAR(40)
userLevel Not Null INTEGER

userLevel will be a foriegn key, so you would also need to create the userLevel table

userLevelID Not Null INTEGER Auto Increament PRIMARY KEY
description Not Null VARCHAR(100)

the user level entries should be-

1. Visitors
2. Power Users
3. Administrators

This is how access values are recognised when you apply access levels.

Hope this helps
