Quick Start

Let's start :)
Firstly we will load Aauth Library to system


thats OK.

Now we will create 2 new users, Ali and John

$this->aauth->create_user('ali@ali.com','alispass','Ali Akay');
$this->aauth->create_user('john@john.com','johnspass','John Button');

thats it. now we have two users.

Lets Create two group governors and commons :)


ok now we have two groups.

Lets create a permissions 'incrase_tax' and 'change_government'


Ok, now lets give accesses. logically 'governors' will have 'increase_tax' permission and 'commons' will have 'change_government' access.
ok lets give proper access with alow() function



Ops wait a minute. commons cannot 'increase_tax'. we need to fix it, we will use deny() to take back permission.


Ok now lets check if commons can 'increase_tax'

    // i dont think so
} else {
   // do sth in the middle

i think 'increse_tax' must have never been created. delete it


now better.

So what about public people? (public means not logged users). can public people travel? Lets assume we have permissions namely 'travel' , of course.


So Admin? what can he do? He can access everthing, You dont need to give permiision ( allow() ) him, he already has.

ok lets lokk at private messages. John (his id=3) will send pm to Ali(id=4)

$this->aauth->send_pm(3,4,'Hi bro. i need you',' can you gimme your credit card?')

sorry John you will be banned :(


Quick Start is done but thats not the end
