Setting up SecurityAssist

Setting up SecurityAssist

I've gotten everything setup w/ MySQL database - had some problems but got these resolved. Now, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to apply the rules so a successful login opens a protected web page. The "rules" part of SecurityAssist (SA) has me completely baffled. Is there a tutorial somewhere that explains all this in detail and demos how to apply the SA generated pages to a website?

Javascript errors

Does this apply to OS X 10.7 and CS5.5? I get several Javascript timeout, onchange, option not found, etc. errors.

the rule that applies to a logged in user is the Logged into <your table name>" rule (where <your table name> is the name of your users table.

this is the rule you would apply to your protected pages so that only a logged in user can access them

for the error messages:
Delete the Dreamweaver Cache file from the users configuration folder:

MacFileCache.dat

As I stated earlier, I'm using OS X 10.7 and CS5.5 and cannot locate a MacFileCache.dat file to delete. Does this file or something similar exist on my system and do I need to delete it to rectify the javascript errors?

No Detailed Instructions

I've spent way too much time trying to figure out how to get the SecurityAssist extension to work for me.

Your online help files only cover obvious overviews and fail to go into details - especially how to actually apply rules and make one's webpages work with the extension. Unless there is a detailed "how to" manual or tutorial that includes example setups and will show me step-by-step how to use this extension on a website, I'll have to insist on a refund.

Please let me know who I should contact to obtain a refund and how I can uninstall the extension and remove it from my system without disturbing my WebAssist HTML Editor installation.

This did not work... I still cannot get the login to open the restricted page after a successful login. Don't you have any example of how this is done? I'm sure I'm missing the obvious and simply don't know how to proceed.

When you create a login page SA lets you define the page that is loaded when a login is successful. When you apply the SA Restrict Access behavior to that page you must have at minimum the "Logged into users" condition applied (set in the Rules Manager for setting up page access). Here you can apply other rules as well to restrict access.

Make sure that whatever rule you have applied to the login success page has the "Logged into users" condition applied. Double click on the SA Restrict Access to Page server behavior and then the Rules Manager to check. Also -- you can have only one "Allow" rule applied to a page. All others must be a "Restrict" rule.

randyrie405335,
it could be that there is a server level problem causing the login not to work

to start with, lets make sure your server is configured to properly store session values.

use the session test page from the following thread:
showpost.php?p=23826&postcount=2

if the session test fails, it is most likely a bad session.save_path in the php.ini file, you will need to contact the host to have them correct the problem.


if you continue to have a problem, please send a copy of the registration page, the login page and a protected page as well as the webassist/security_assist/helpergrouprules.php file in a zip archive so i can examine the code.

Refund Request

I tried the session test and it ran successfully, so my system setup is not at fault. I also tried for two days to get the logon to work with your suggestions but no success. I've invested a great deal of time trying to make what should be a simple process work but all to no avail. I need to move on.

I am now formally requesting a refund of my purchase price of $149.00 for the SecurityAssist extension. I do not believe this extension will ever work for me nor serve my purposes. I also require information how to uninstall the extension without damaging my WebAssist HTMLEditor extension (which is great, BTW !!).

Please advise how I initiate a refund.
