Security Assist preventing successful login

A web site that I created was just moved to a new host, and now Security Assist is not working on the admin area. It's all working locally, but this code is not accepting the user and is bumping them back to the login page each time - even though the login credentials are correct, and the code on both servers is the same.

This is my code:
<?php require_once( "../webassist/security_assist/helper_php.php" ); ?>
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to pcms2_users")){

If I remove the security assist script, it works, of course.

UPDATE: I created a different login using the built in DW user authentication modules, and it works with that - just not security assist.

Please see PM for FTP credentials. Thank you.

UPDATE*** I think it's working now. It wasn't storing the session variables. The error logs were able to point the ISP in the right direction. If there are any more issues with the server move, I will update this thread. So far, so good now. Thanks!
