Access logs php/mysql

Recommended Posts

Hi Guyz

After getting assistance on the previous posts, here I am with another one. I want to record the time when user login and logout of the web. I have searched through the web and found web stats and access counters etc but I dont need something as detailed as that I have a very small website with users given login passwords to go and add reports (done in php/mysql). Can someone direct me to a suitable tutorial or a sample I can look at -- thanks.

just add something like this after the login verification is succesful

$logged = date("H:i:s");

and UPDATE it in your user's table

same thing for loggout, just make sure you make 2 new rows in your database, one for the time they logged in and the other for the time they logged out

you can have as many timestamp columns in a table as you want. If you want to keep the old login you'll probably have to make a new table with just: id users login_time logout_time , where users is the name of your user that logged in/out.

just replace the part that says WHERE id = 1 with WHERE username = and that variable or session you used to store the username

something like

mysql_query("UPDATE access_log SET logout_datetime = date('Y-m-d h:i:sa', time()) WHERE username = '$username' ");
