Keeps redirecting to login page

Keeps redirecting to login page

I've setup a simple test site. I've created an acces rule called "admin" with a value of three.

The test.php page can only be accessed as an admin. When I click the link to test.php it redirects to the login page.

After I log in the login page redirects to test.php but again test.php redirects to log-in page.

I've checked the files and the admin rule exists, I know I must be doing something wrong but I don't know where because I did it exactly as in the video.

Would you please take a look at it, many thanks in advance

your access rule uses the $_SESSION['groupid'] variable, so the first thing I would want to know for troubleshooting, is what is the value being stored in the groupid variable on login.

to find this out, add the following code to the login page after the login form:

php:
<pre><?php if(!session_id()) session_start(); ?><?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?></pre>



post back the results of this code after trying to login, this will help us begin to troubleshoot the problem.

I've tested this site the next day and it worked. Now as it turns out I run my testserver on IIS. The strange thing is that it kept keeping changing the file permissions so Dreamweaver couldn't copy the right files onto the testing server. I discovered this by accident. I've set up some new testing sites just to test if I could reproduce this error but all went well. Then with using digital file pro I ran into trouble again. IIS keeps changing the user permissions at random. I'm happy that my production server is a VPS running on Linux and Apache.

Thanks for looking into this..

Hmmm, that's strange that the IIS server keeps changing the file permissions, may try uninstalling IIS on your local computer and reinstalling it will fix the issue?

Glad to hear it is working on the remote host.
