View Full Version : Video Tutorial - Login Script #1

09-03-2007, 04:31 AM

I am having some troubles with the login script 1st tutorial.

I am not getting any errors, but for some reason, when I hit my submit button, the script cannot find the user that I have in my mySQL database.

Here is the code I am using.

require_once("./connection.php"); //Database Connection

//Catch Field Data
$userid = $_POST['userid'];
$password = $_POST['passowrd'];
$submitted = $_POST['submitted'];

if ($userid && $password) {
$query = sprintf("SELECT * FROM users where user_name='$userid' and user_password = '$userpassword'");
$result = @mysql_query($query);
$rowAccount = @mysql_fetch_array($result);

if ($rowAccount){

echo "The record exists so you can enter";


echo "You dont exist in the system, so sucks to be you, but your not getting in!";

<td width="161"> <input name="userid" type="text" id="userid" /> </td>

<td width="161"> <div align="center">
<input name="submitted" type="hidden" id="submitted" value="1" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Login" />
I do have the connection.php file configured right. (I am 99.9% sure :D)

Also, I do have an account made in the database. I can post a screenshot up of that too, if you need that.

Please help,

nice one

now dont you feel like a right plum when that happens

Yes, I do feel a bit flawed :P

But, I do have another question.

Part 9 - Inserting data with PHP (http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/../vtm/)

What is the code that is in the php wrappers in the table with the ID1, data2, data3, data4?

Thanks for everything so far!
Your tutorials are awesome!

From my knowledge, it is going to be something like,

<?php echo '$id'; ?>
<?php echo '$data2'; ?>
and so on

am I correct?

<? echo $rowAccount['db_column']; ?>

Your tutorials are awesome!

<? echo $rowAccount['db_column']; ?>

Ok, I tried this, but it only displays the 1st row in the mysql database.

Example: I have 3 id's

1-3 full of information

This is only displaying id #1 information but not 2 and 3. How would I get this to display all of the rows in the database?

EDIT: I forgot to loop it. So here is an example code.

do {
echo '<tr><td height="21" valign="top">'.$row['data2'];
} while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result));
echo '</td></tr>';
