including security on custom PS pages

including security on custom PS pages

I've done a lot of customization of a Power Store installation. Now I've made some pages in the admin folder so that the clients can easily make changes to some of the options. I put these pages in the admin folder and want to make sure that they're secure. I tried adding this code to the top of each page:

<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); if (!session_id()) session_start();?>
<?php
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Administrator")){
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("index.php");
}
?>

I thought that would make it use the same security rules as the rest of the admin part of the store. However, when I try to follow a link to one of these pages, I get an error message from my browser (Chrome):

Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.

What am I missing about how to apply security to these pages? I also tried doing it by clicking WebAssist>SecurityAssist>Secure page

It didn't recognize that there were security rules already defined that could be used. This is probably because Power Store is not installed in the root directory.

Suggestions?

did you add that same code to the admin/index.php page? The access restriction code should not be on the admin/index.php page.


are the secured pages in the admin folder? or a subfolder of the admin folder? if they are in a subfolder of the admin folder, the redirect to the index page would need to be modified to account for that:
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("../index.php");

I didn't touch the index page of the admin section. The pages are in the admin folder, not a subfolder.
