Data Assist user login

I have a login page with DataAssist user login server behavior and I have checked everything and all seems to be OK but it will not log the user in but keeps displaying the same login page. I have attached the page code if you care to take a look and tell me what is wrong.
The link to the live page is http://www.nacbc.com/login2.php (uname=sales pw=sales1082)
Thanks you

When i test the login, it looks like it redirects to the account.php page, but there is an access restriction on that page that is redirecting back to login

What access rule is applied to the account.php page and how is that rule defined?

The access rule is for direct access to the account.php in which case it redirects to the login.php

You are using the Dreamweaver Page access restriction behavior.

you will need to use the security access restriction behavior instead since you are using the security assist login.


Go to WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Manage Site Access -> Access Pages Manager.

select the pages that should be restricted, and select the access rule to apply.

if no rules are defined, click the Access Rules button to open the Access Rules Manager panel and define a rule.

For basic access rule, use the memID session that is created by the login page, set the rule to:

Allow if
Value: Click the lightning bolt and select the memID session variable
Criteria: <>
Compare to: leave this blank

In other words:
Allow IF the memID session variable is not empty

Thank you Jason. If I understand correctly, if I am using the Dreamweaver page access restriction then I will have to use the Dreamweaver login server behavior but if I use WebAssist's Access Page manager then I can use WebAssist's Security Assist user login. If that be the case then I will follow your instructions above.

Yes, that is correct, if you use the DW login behavior, use the DW Page restriction

if you use Security Assist for login, you must also use security assist for page access.
