How to do security now with DataBrige 2

HI Ray, Thanks for your help. I'm trying to update security for an admin area on the same site. I think I have 2 iterations of security on the admin folder. One was the old KAT which Adobe bought but I also have pages that use WA security assist. I think they are the newer ones. However when I try to login to the new one, I get this error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

Also, when I try to load the WA Security to manage the pages, the database seems to take so long to load that I have to force quit. The page also says "Security assist (prior version) I notice that with the New Dbridge there is also User Authentication under the MySQLi tab. And am not sure which one I should be using to make sure the logins are compliant with the php 7, or the best way to update the security.

Also, when I opened the Security Assist > Create Security Pages, the whole DW 2020 seemed to time out.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

This error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'

most likely means you are using an invalid mysql server host domain.

The long loading may be because of an infinite loop or recursive redirect. Maybe a conflict with the two security server behaviors on the same page or site.

The timeout when opening the Security Assist wizard is probably because of a database connection issue.

We should probably tackle these one at a time in individual threads so it doesn't get too confusing.

okay, what should we tackle first. In looking at these pages, there is such a collection of old code that it is confusing. Now we have on this site fixed the connections issues before. When I do a recordset, e.g., the tables appear as they should. I have removed duplicate connections on the page. This page was at least displaying until I updated the Security assist user (prior version) to the new one. Now I get the blank page on this one as well. Same login info as last time except

these pages are in the admin folder


OOPS I ddin't see the new WA security folder I uploaded it. But am getting the socket layer error

You probably didn't upload the new include files the page is using. I'd have to debug it live with FTP access to find errors. I can't just look at a file and tell if everything is uploaded.

I Had forgotten to upload the new files. I did now and am getting the socket error when I try to log in.Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

Is this part of WA Security Assist user code or outdated ?


// Load the tNG classes
require_once('../includes/tng/tNG.inc.php');

// Make unified connection variable
$conn_LiveGold = new KT_connection($LiveGold, $database_LiveGold);

//Start Restrict Access To Page
$restrict = new tNG_RestrictAccess($conn_LiveGold, "../");
//Grand Levels: Any
$restrict->Execute();
//End Restrict Access To Page

It may be #($*7 things up.

I'm not familiar with tNG_RestrictAccess, I'd remove that code and see if you still have issues. It may not be compatible with php7 or mysqli.
