Thanks. I can't find any documentation that tells how to create the config/permissions.php file. I can find references to it but it assumes a vast amount of familiarity.
Correction: I did figure out by finding other files named permissions.php and reading the information there. Should that not be part of the installation? From the root directory of the app
cp vendors/cakedc/auth/config/permissions.php config/
vim config/permissions #add the line above to the return array.
My problem now is that the authentication does not work, I can reset the password then back to login screen. I can create a new user at the command line and that works? try http://minivacs.magna.net its just a test/learning space.
