I'm completing the video tutorial for the php log in script and I'm having trouble getting it to work. It keeps returning that my user/password are wrong even though I have checked these. can anyone help?


$database = "db";
$username = "user";
$password = "password";

// Choose Connection
$link = @mysql_connect($database ,$username, $password);
$db =mysql_select_db($database, $link);

//catch field data
$userid = $_POST['userid'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
$submitted = $_POST['submitted'];

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

if($rowAccount) {
echo "Success";

echo "fail";

Tidak Bagus. No not good. 7 year old post and mysql is depreciated so pretty useless now
