Start Over

I am working with only a login and logout page for my website.

How do I removed security assist completely from the website.

I thougth I removed all of it, but when I click my admin link, it still is redirected to the denied page. The Auth was removed from the login page and the page control was removed from the admin page.

Everything should be completely gone. I have gone online to removed the files and folders and install them again, but it still goes to that page.

I am starting over because even when I logged in as an admin, it would still go to the denied page.

So basically, how do I know 100% that I removed security assist for the site.

thx

Mike

to know 100% you would need to inspect the code for each page to make sure that all security assist code was removed.


look for the require_once line that attaches the security assist helper file:
<?php require_once( "WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>



and look for the page access code:
<?php
if (WA_Auth_RulePasses("Your Rule Name")){
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("index.php");
}
?>

Security Problem still

Thru this whole process I am learning alot.

I am added Wordpress to the backend of my website. I have added it and it works. I would like to secure it with Security Assist. I believe it is possible since I have already done it on my local server.

I cannot achieve the same results with my online server. I know for a fact that I am losing my login admin status. The local sever I am not.

I have a simple login/logout pages made by security assist. I have made 2 pages secure from this. My admin page which directs to Wordpress login and the Wordpress index.php.

My admin page works. I have created a rule for admins only. I have added sessions variable on the pages I am cking to see if I am still logged in.

I am logged in all the way until I get into Wordpress admin.php. With Wordpress, I can look at my index.php which of course loads the themes and everything else.

I know this works since I have the local server working. So any ideas what I am doing wrong?

If not, what do I need to send for some ideas. About 15 hours on this. Uggg.

Any help would be great.

thx

first is to make sure that all of the files are being uploaded correctly to the server.

then test the servers session management using the session test page in the following post.
showpost.php?p=23826&postcount=2

if all of that checks out, send the page that the access restriction is not working on, the login page and the wa_securityassisyt/helpergrouprules_php.php file.
