- Make sure you have signed in as superuser or admin before running Rights
- You need a model named **User**. If you have a user table but with another
name, change the Rights configuration

    userClass'userClass' => 'AnotherName',

- The user table MUST NOT contain field named "name" or it will
conflict with Rights
- If you inherit CWebUser, make sure the class doesn't have a method named
