Restrict access to page

Hi;
I'd like to have a restricted access to page based on username, password and access level, the same as built-in dreamweaver server behaviors, but the webassist server behaviors seems differs from that. How can I determine the access level?

You could store the access level in the session when you log in and then check the access level from that session variable on the individual pages.

Another solution would be to have multiple authentication server behaviors on the login page and have separate logins for each access level (only one form, but multiple server behaviors). I'd probably go with this option if you only have a couple of access groups.

Is there anybody to help me to revise the code provided by "MySQLi Log In User" not redirect to a single page but to different pages based on users access level e.g. admin= level 1, manager= level 2 and user=level 3.
Admins can access to all pages but managers / users are restricted to their own pages.

You can save the user access level in the session and then use a simple IF statement on the login page to redirect. Remove the success redirect from the "MySQLi Log In User" server behavior entirely and then use the same trigger below to redirect based on the value of the saved session variable instead.

Thanks Ray, Finally I managed the code as I wanted a little bit different from your guidance. I did not change the "MySQLi Log In User" at all. Instead I changed the successful redirected page with IF statements as follows:

<?php

//Direct pages with different user levels
if ($_SESSION['accesslvl'] == '1') {
header('location: user1.html'); //User1
session_register("username");
session_register("password");

}
else
if ($_SESSION['accesslvl'] == '2') {
header('location: user2.html'); //User2
session_register("username");
session_register("password");

}
else
if ($_SESSION['accesslvl'] == '3') {
header('location: user3.html'); //user 3
session_register("username");
session_register("password");

}
else
{
// Error login
echo "<script>alert('Access Denied!');
window.location='access_denied.php';
</script>";
}

?>
