Problems setting access levels

Problems setting access levels

I need to set access levels based on the following values:

<?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> - check for membership registration

<?php echo $_SESSION['OrderSubscLevel']; ?> - what level subscription is current

<?php echo $_SESSION['SubscActive']; ?> - has the subscription run out or is active

I have written a script that sets the additional 2 SESSION variables because they come from orders table used by the cart system. I have tested the script and at login the values are available.

The problem that I am having is in getting the different user levels to interact properly.

There are 5 levels of interactivity within the site.
1- non member - values for this user are
<?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> - 0
<?php echo $_SESSION['OrderSubscLevel']; ?> - 0
<?php echo $_SESSION['SubscActive']; ?> - 0

2- member (free service) - user level 1
<?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> - 1
<?php echo $_SESSION['OrderSubscLevel']; ?> - 0
<?php echo $_SESSION['SubscActive']; ?> - 0

3- first level subscription (paid service) -
<?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> - 1
<?php echo $_SESSION['OrderSubscLevel']; ?> - 2
<?php echo $_SESSION['SubscActive']; ?> - 1

4- second level subscription
<?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> - 1
<?php echo $_SESSION['OrderSubscLevel']; ?> - 3
<?php echo $_SESSION['SubscActive']; ?> - 1

5- third level subscription
<?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> - 1
<?php echo $_SESSION['OrderSubscLevel']; ?> - 4
<?php echo $_SESSION['SubscActive']; ?> - 1

Content available to each successive level still needs to be open to the higher levels.

I just don't seem to find any combination of these that will work. It seems like as soon as any "allow" criteria is hit all the others are just ignored. I need all 3 criteria to be met before allowing access.

I have tried to set groups for this but when I try to define a group based on either of the two variables I set in my script Security Assist Groups Manager gives this error:
uilnitialize error.
Error: The object is not currently contained in a document

Well, it's almost 5am and I am going to have to go to bed. Been up trying to figure this out and it just doesn't make any sense at all.

I have enclosed a couple of images of screen caps showing the simplest rule I have setup and the script I ran and results I got to be sure that the values for the security checks are available in the SESSION array.

When I put this rule on a page I can no longer view the page whether I am logged in or not.

As you can see, when I am logged in the UserLevel SESION variable is currently 1. The rule is set to allow access if that variable is 1 but I still get redirected to the fail page.

This first 2 variables (SecurityAssist_UserID and UserLevel) are ones that are available directly through the settings in SA2. The other 2 variables are the ones I generated by pulling values from the orders tables and doing my calculations to check for the active subscription and level of access. I have also included the login.php file I altered and the file containing the function call I used to generate these variables.
