I am working on a custom magento admin module, which can be configured through (System -> Configuration -> My Module). Here are my xml from etc dir:

app/code/community/Mycompany/Mymodule/etc/config.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>

    <!-- Module Info -->
    <modules>
        <Mycompany_Mymodule>
            <version>2.0.0</version>
        </Mycompany_Mymodule>
    </modules>

    ...snipped...

</config>

app/code/community/Mycompany/Mymodule/etc/adminhtml.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>

    <!-- Menu Setup -->
    <menu>
        <mycompany translate="title" module="mycompany_mymodule">
            <title>My Module</title>
            <sort_order>0</sort_order>
            <children>
                <configuration>
                    <title>Configuration</title>
                    <sort_order>0</sort_order>

    </menu>

After uploading the module, I can see the menu and when I click to go to the config, I see the following:

I tried going into (System -> Permission -> Users/Roles) and tried saving. Logging out and logging back again. Flushing cache etc... but no luck so far.

What have I done wrong here? I am using magento 1.9.x.

Okay, I figured it out (thanks to http://alanstorm.com/custom_magento_system_configuration).

Silly mistake on the ACL definition. This is the correct XML:

<acl>
    <resources>
        <admin>
            <children>
                <system>
                    <children>
                        <config>
                            <children>
                                <mymodule_config>
                                    <title>My Module Configuration</title>
                                </mymodule_config>
                            </children>
                        </config>
                    </children>
                </system>
            </children>
        </admin>
    </resources>
</acl>
