Logon Authenticate User

I'm trying to get a logon/restrict-access setup to properly work on my site. The Security Assist authentication does not work at all - it always crashed Dreamweaver and mucks up the code.

Here is how I try yo set this up:
1.) I add a Mysqli recordset that will select all from my access table in the dB
2.) then I use the Webassist/MySQLi "User Authentication" UI, and set the "Find Record" tab to assign the "getColumnVal" for both the username and password and assign the ID to a session under the "Store Values" tab from the record set (when I re-open the UI... these values are not displayed.

But I can enter ANYTHING into the logon form and it'll always open the restricted access page (see attachment).

I have not been able to ever get the logon/restrict-access setups to work on any of my sites using Webassist's authentication. Can you direct me to a step-by-step I can follow to rule out pilot error?

You should be filtering the value from the FORM not the Recordset. You want to find the record entered in the form in your table. I'm not even sure why you have a RSLogin recordset on your page. A recordset should not be necessary on this page at all.

Logon not working

I've removed the recordset and used the Authentication UI to setup the logon form. Still does not authenticate - I can click on the logon submit button with the username and password fields empty and it'll open its restricted page. See the URL in my private meesage to test.

Please attach the actual .php page when sending me files so I can open them with Dreamweaver.

The code looks correct, but I'm getting the same result you reported, so something is wrong. If you send me FTP information I can take a look and debug to report what is going wrong.

My FTP info is enclosed in the private message.

You gave me ftp information for nittanyleathernecks.com but the site with the login that doesn't work is statecollegedev.com. When I go to the site that you gave me FTP access to the login seems to work properly. I have to debug the page that isn't working to tell you why it wouldn't be working properly.

Logon issue

You say the logon for the Leatherneck site works??!! I still can access the portal page without the logon intercepting. I’ll try it on my PC to see if the same thing happens.

I only found that the login page prevented me from moving on to the next page and failed. I'm not saying it worked. It looks like it isn't even using our extension. It looks like that page is using the old Adobe code for login. I was expecting to debug why our extension code wasn't working based on the code examples you sent previously.

I DID use the Webassist logon... the old DWCS6 code no longer works on my system... see the attached screen caps.

I just relocated the development site to its actual host server location for further testing and the logon still allows the restricted page (admin_portal.php) to open with out any credentials. I need this fixed before I go live or the entire site is susceptible to hacking.

The code on your logon page doesn't match the code you sent in the earlier post. You don't have the lines:

$Authenticate->addFilter("Username", "=", "s", "".((isset($_POST["Username"]))?$_POST["Username"]:"") ."");
$Authenticate->addFilter("Password", "=", "s", "".((isset($_POST["Password"]))?$_POST["Password"]:"") ."");

Those are necessary to force correct entries in the username and password fields before the login is accepted.
