user auth problem


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a problem with my code probably it's authorisation mistake or something. I bought a book PHP6, MySQL, Apache Web Development and I am copying every excercise like it's in the book. If u have this book it's chapter 2, page 63. And here is the exact code from the book. It always says that the user ID or pass is incorrect.



session_start ();
$_SESSION['username'] = $_POST['user'];
$_SESSION['userpass'] = $_POST['pass'];
$_SESSION['authuser'] = 1;

//over uzivatelske meno a heslo
if (  ($_SESSION['username'] == 'Peter') and
      ($_SESSION['userpas'] == '12345')) {
   $_SESSION['authuser'] = 1;
  } else {
    echo "Unfortunately you do not have required authorisation to enter this site!";

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Najts oblubeny film!</title>

$oblubenyfilm = urlencode('Zivot Briana');
echo '<a href="moviesite.php?oblfilm=$oblubenyfilm\">';
echo 'Dalsie informacie o mojom oblubenom filme!';
echo '</a>'


The page is http://www.magicfoto.gigacast.net/test/login.php

as you can see ID is "Peter" and pass "12345"


If you know what should be wrong pls reply.


PS.: I am a begginer so please be patient ;)
