Login Fails endlessley

I have gone through the interactive tutorials numerous times step-by-step but have yet to get the login/user system working correctly. I am creating an eCommerce site using all of the Super Suite tools. The Dataassist extensions have worked pretty much flawlessly. I used them to create a basic CMS for adding/updating/deleting/inserting the products. I am working towards developing an administrative back-end as outlined in one of your tutorials and have stored these pages in a directory called "admin". All I want to do is create a simple username/password system for accessing the index.php page inside of the "admin" directory if the login is successful. I created a simple MySQL database that is only 4 columns.


At this point I want to just manually enter the credentials for all of the admins into the database so that I only have to create a simple "one-page" login form. They do not have to register, and if they forget their credentials, I will manually change them in the database. Probably not too secure, but I am desperate at this point.

Seems pretty straight forward with Security Assist, but every time I run through the the whole wizard and all Security Assist tutorials, my login attempts fail and always take me to the access_denied.php page ( in the root directory of the site ) which I have set-up for failed login attempts.

My admin_login.php page is stored in the root directory of the site and I am trying to take the user to /admin/index.php on successful login. I have applied all of the user level access to the /admin directory so that only administrators can access that directory.

Either I am doing something fundamentally wrong in my file structure, or there is an issue with my database setup because I have followed the instructions to the letter without any luck.

Below is a link to my testing site login page. I do not want to provide login credentials, but have attached my admin_login.php and admin_logout.php files for your review. Let me know if there are any other files you need to help my sort this out.


I really appreciate your expertise and assistance.
