I removed the sha1 encryption from the login page and tried again without success. So I deleted the WASecurityAssist directory and the all the appropriate login pages and then started the wizard again. I created just the registration and login pages following the tutorials for login/registration.
Upon my next test, I am getting error "incorrect table name". I keep trying to simplify this process. I created the "admin" table with only the 4 columns and I know that I am selecting that table for the "insert record" step of the admin_registration.php page, so I am at a lost as to why it is now returning that error.
My apologies for putting you through your paces so early this morning, but this is really vexing me. I still have to create the eCart version of this project and need to get a grip on handling users before I can move on to that portion.
Thanks in advance.
