I'm hoping I'm reading this incorrectly. But search-based
configuration sounds like a bad idea to me. I like the idea of
grouping things better. But I still want to be able to slog through
page after page of configuration so I can see all the possible
configuration options at a glance. Making the configurations respond
to "search" would require adding a lot of alias words to the various
I like the idea of having a separate control table for config info.
the conf_values table should just have the data. A separate table
should be used to control the configuration layout. As for
permissions, I would suggest looking at SEC_hasRights. You should
have two fields in the database: the first is a comma separated list
of features. The second is either "AND" or "OR". You then pass these
two fields directly to SEC_hasRights to see if the user can modify
that configuration option.
