Error on CMS index.php

I just uploaded all of my site files and I get this error on my cms index page (index.php):

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare WA_AuthenticateUser() (previously declared in /home/cts/public_html/webassist/security_assist/helper_php.php:28) in /home/cts/public_html/WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php on line 46

Same Problem

Hi Jason
I have a new build to do, I wasn't quite ready to upload the files but did so to test the registration system email functionality, which is all fine, I have the same problem as above only on my live server, I have tried commenting out the require once line in the CMS file this did not fix the problem for me,
I have imported the dB tables from my local server and rewritten the connection scripts,
I have noticed some entries in the dB tables that I think should be changed, but can't imagine they would be creating this problem.
In particular the session_varstable table, kfm_url, "http:\/\/localhost\/JMbuild\/webassist\/kfm\/index.php?\\C:\\xampp\\htdocs\\JMbuild\\webassist\\"
& in the session table, kfm_url, /JMbuild/webassist/kfm could you also please confirm the correct structure for these links, the first looks a little confusing?
I'm hoping that these maybe contributing to the problem.
Thanks in advance

you do not need to change anything in the kfm_ tables, leave those as is.

I have created a support ticket so we can look into this issue further.

Thanks to the help of Ray the problem was resolved quickley and efficently, it appears that there is sometimes a problem when you run power cms and security asssist on the same site, it can cause a conflict with the helper files,
the simple fix was to let Dreamweaver do a sitewide search and replace for ..

FIND: '/WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php'
REPLACE: '/webassist/security_assist/helper_php.php'

Then re-upload all files to the live server including the admin template as this is called for on line 46

This will now stop any conflicts and you can access your cms admin files.

As for the kfm path issue I mentioned, when importing tables from localhost to a live server, this was also a simple fix just delete all the the tables with the kfm_ prefix from the live server, when you first use the text editor in the cms it will automatically re create the tables.

I hope this helps anyone else who is facing a similar problem.

Thanks for the help guys :)
