SA not Working

I think I'm not getting my Access Rules Manager properly set.

I have a Users db set with username, password, and also a level field. The Login page and code works; I cannot get the various admin pages restricted. One of the pages is newsArticles.php -- when I run the Access Pages Manager and the access code is added I get the DW CS5 error message:

"Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for this server."

If I comment out this:

<?php require_once( "WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>

the site definition error goes away. Of course I get another error because the code following the include_once depends on the commented out file.

I'm using CS5, Windows 7 64 bit, and Apache 2.2. . .

this points to a problem with your site definition

Most likely a problem with the servers settings, how are the server s setup in the site definition?

do you have a testing server specified?

Jason -- my server error is gone this morning.

That said, I still not getting Access Control. Do I need to add a users table recordset to the pages I want to control? OR does the 'SESSION_id' provide that info?

I have added the username from the users table I want to have access to the Rules Manager group. The value box has "<?php echo $_SESSION['id']; ?>" in it, and the Criteria is "in Group". Compare to is admin, with the username included in that group.



ETA: Checked for PHP errors -- none reported. . .

Okay -- I'm a little dense this week.

It works using the default "Logged into Users" rule. I wanted to add a restriction based on user level, and was not using the default rule.

Will play with Restricting access based on a Level value in the db. . .

Apologize for tying up the bandwidth :)
