hi eric,

i have added sha1 encryption to my update records and it is storing the password encrypted in the database. however when i applied this to my security assist authenticate user behaviour the login page is not allowing my get into the site.

here is the php code generated by security assist:

<?php require_once("WA_SecurityAssist/WA_SHA1Encryption.php"); ?>
<?php require_once('Connections/conn.php');?>
<?php require_once( "WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?><?php
if ((((isset($_POST["remembermeoption"]))?$_POST["remembermeoption"]:"") != "")) {
setcookie("RememberMePWD", "".((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") ."", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
if ((((isset($_POST["remembermeoption"]))?$_POST["remembermeoption"]:"") != "")) {
setcookie("RememberMeUN", "".((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:"") ."", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
if (isset($_POST["LogIn_x"]) && !isset($_POST["remembermeoption"])) {
setcookie("RememberMePWD", "", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
if (isset($_POST["LogIn_x"]) && !isset($_POST["remembermeoption"])) {
setcookie("RememberMeUN", "", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $conn,
"database" => $database_name,
"tableName" => "users",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"Username".$WA_Auth_Separator."Password"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:"") ."".$WA_Auth_Separator."".WA_SHA1Encryption(((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"")) .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"text".$WA_Auth_Separator."text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."AccessLevel"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."AccessLevel"),
"successRedirect" => "index.php",
"failRedirect" => "EmailPW.php",
"gotoPreviousURL" => TRUE,
"keepQueryString" => TRUE


does this look right? also when i click the email password it sends the encrypted version from the database in the email and not the unencrypted version.

even when i try copying and pasting this password it still will not let me into the site.

can you help please?

am i missing anything in the code or any other files? securityassist folder uploaded to the site and works if i take out the sha1 encryption.

many thanks
