Error when creating Security pages for admin back-end

Error when creating Security pages for admin back-end

Hi,

I was trying to create the user login pages for the Admin back-end of my client's website with Security Assist.
It created the pages, however, when trying to manage the security of these pages, it modifies the test.php file with the following code right above the code to call the database connection:

<?php require_once( "../webassist/security_assist/helper_php.php" ); ?>
<?php
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to pcms2_users")){
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("index.php");
}
?>

This is when I encounter the problem because when attempting to go to the login page (renamed "index.php") it gives me a "This webpage has a redirect loop" page

What I was trying to achieve is redirect the user back go the login page (called index.php) when trying to access selected pages in the back-end, when they are Not logged in.

Attached files in question. Also, under link below:

on the index page, you have the logged in access rule applied at line 85 - 89:


php:
<?php

if (WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to pcms2_users")){
    
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("");
}
?>




this is preventing access to the page.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your quick response.
However, I just tried taking out that php code from line 85 - 89, and it still does not go to the page.

Any idea as to where else the source of the problem might be?

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

you had added the access restriction code to the connection file Connections/test.php:

<?php require_once( "../webassist/security_assist/helper_php.php" ); ?>
<?php
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to pcms2_users")){
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("index.php");
}
?>

that was causing the access to the admin/index page to fail.

Hey Jason,

That was weird... I noticed the interface added that piece of code when it generated the pages.

However, when i take that piece of PHP code from the test.php page, I run into a couple other issues.:

For some reason, the login page loads up with the error messages already showing, before ever typing any info in the fields.

Also, when I try loading the registration.php page, it gives me the following error:

"Fatal error: Call to undefined function WA_Auth_RulePasses() in /home/content/23/9114623/html/TLM/admin/registration.php on line 81"

I looked in this file on line 81, but don't know really what I am supposed to edit in order for it to work.

attached the files

after the security assist wizard creates the pages, it opens the access pages manager window for you to apply access restriction to the pages in your site.

the only way the access rule would have been applied to the connection file is if you selected the connection file in the access pages manager.

for the registration page, it is missing the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php require_once( "../webassist/security_assist/helper_php.php" ); ?>




the login page is showing validation errors because some of the spry assets files are missing from the server, for example:
