cookies/session

Recommended Posts

Ok guys heres the deal.  I have been struggling on this for about two weeks and am giving up.

Because I'm giving up, I would like to throw this up to you guys to help me out.

 

I am trying to build a login

I tried learning sessions but they make no sense to me whatsoever on how the information passes from one to another.  So i created my own sessions database, where im uploading the data i need to pass page to page to my db, and repulling it on the next page.  In order to do this i needed to create a cookie so I can refrence that data on the next page, main.php.

When I run main.php i get an the echo of. "THIS COOKIE AINT FUCKING WORKING". which to me means one of two things.  One is either im not creating the cookie right, or two, im not accessing it correctly.  But to widdle that down I created the testpoint on if cookie is created and it seems to work fine, cuase im not getting the die().

 

Im not an advance php programmer by any means,  just been self learning for a few months, so bear with me and please break it down as much as possible.  I feel that if i can just get a userid created on one page, put it into a cookie, send it, and retreive it when on the next page, i can do the rest from there.  If you can see why that is happening then let me know.

 

Thanks in advance.

hey, 

This is a much harder way of doing things.  The best thing to do is use sessions, when you understand them, they are much easier than cookies.

 

have a look at this tutorial on building registration form, inserting the data to a database and then the oher parts look at creating a login page.

 

if you need specific help then get back in touch but this might work better as this tells you how to do.
