Starting over, using Security Assist or MySqli User AUTH..

Hi Ray, I am finding it easier to rebuild the ability to modify metal prices in a new folder, than trying to trouble shoot and update the old one. This is probably safer anyway. However, I am trying to install security for these pages. I am a bit confused about the options. Is SA now rolled into Databridge2 but the Drop Down Menu still showing SA is part of the new DB2 or is it a legacy option. I was able to install security on all the pages in that folder, but it did not create a login for the security (I used a blank form not a prebuilt because I didn't need a new table, and I think that is why when prebuilt was selected it went into a loop trying to connect to the DB). So, I am using SA to create a login set of pages, but now not sure if/how to apply that session to the other pages where I created managed security.

Also, the MySqli user AUTH is confusing because it created the requirement for username, but did not actually create a login area on the page. Also, since i am using a db with only username and password, I got a few errors (attached)

And I got a couple of errors when trying to create the login pages and selecting an existing page. Errors 3 -5

I am on a MacPro 2013 with plenty of Ram and I notice WA takes a long time between each option when creating any page or feature. Is my system that old or is it a function of the internet speed and db connection, or is it just the secure feature of how WA does code?
