[SOLVED] Website Login with API:Login and PHP curl

Recommended Posts

Posted same in mediawiki forums, question here to see if curl is correctly made to set cookies on computer.  Sorry for long post hate when someone doesn't give me enough information, need more just tell me.

 

Well I have been trying this for a while and not sure where to go next.

What I am trying to do is have a single login that logins in Mediawiki, PHPbb, and regular website.(Using phpbb and mw login intergration extention if matters)

 

I can login phpbb with their api and get the cookies needed, no problem.

 

I can login MediaWiki from a standard html form with the api:login, but you have to go to api and then that would stop phpbb from completing login.

 

If looking over kiki0313 is username for testing and password is exempt

 

I know some php but first time using curls (don't have to leave page to login with mw api) I have everything setup to what I believe I need (plus debug)

 

PHP Code:

$ch=curl_init();

$postfield = "lgname=" . $username . "&lgpassword=" . $password;

$url = "http://localhost/wiki/api.php?action=login";

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); // set url to post to

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1); 

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $postfield);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, 'C:/wamp/www/cookie.txt');

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

$page = curl_exec($ch);

 

echo "<pre>";

print_r(curl_getinfo($ch)); 

echo "\n\ncURL error number:" .curl_errno($ch); 

echo "\n\ncURL error:" . curl_error($ch);

echo "</pre><br/>";

 

curl_close($ch);

echo nl2br($page); 

If I am missing something please tell me.

Here is the output after I submit the username and password

 

print_r(curl_getinfo($ch));

You are looking at the HTML representation of the XML format.

HTML is good for debugging, but probably is not suitable for your application.

See complete documentation, or API help for more information.

I believe cookies are not being saved to computer with curl. Please help me, I am stuck and not really sure what I have to do to get this to work. I have searched I believe all the mediawiki website plus google search for everything I can think of. I feel like I am really close, Girr.

 

Thank you for any help, Kiki64

First off, please put all your code inside the bbcode php tags.

 

2nd, curl is a client library. It runs on the server, and allows your server to act as a *client*.  As such, it can *accept* cookies, when they are required, and utilize them.  Curl does not set cookies, because it is a client, not a server.  You can set cookies in php without issue.  For that you use the setcookie() function.

User Interface Here html that stuff

<?php
if(isset($_POST['logmein'])) {
if ($result['status'] == LOGIN_SUCCESS)
    {
echo 'Success';
unset($_POST['logmein']);
    }
    else
    {
echo 'Fail';
    }
}
?>
<form method="POST" action="">
<input type="text" name="lgname" size="40" /><br />
<input type="password" name="lgpassword"  size="40" /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Log In" name="logmein" />
</form>  

More User Interface

 

Thank you for further clearafication on curl.

 

Now if the server is essentially getting the cookies.(am I correct with this?)  What should I use to pull them from response header that curl receives.  I know how to setup cookies with php usually but I am just not sure how I am to get the values from the curl cookies since I believe mediawiki sessions are randomly generated.  I know the names of cookies it sets so that is not a problem.

 

Thank you for responding and helping me with this.

 

Sorry about tags mediawiki forums had php specific tag and forgot to change to code
