Login Help

Recommended Posts

I have a simple login script setup for a website im designing, only when i preview it in my browser no matter what i type in the username and password fields, it always denies me access to the locked page. (even if i enter the correct username and password). Below is the source from the login page:


<?php require_once('Connections/Login.php'); ?>


// *** Validate request to login to this site.



$loginFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];

if (isset($accesscheck)) {

$GLOBALS['PrevUrl'] = $accesscheck;




if (isset($_POST['textfield'])) {



$MM_fldUserAuthorization = "";

$MM_redirectLoginSuccess = "Granted.php";

$MM_redirectLoginFailed = "Denied.php";

$MM_redirecttoReferrer = false;

mysql_select_db($database_Login, $Login);


$LoginRS__query=sprintf("SELECT Username, Password FROM login WHERE Username='%s' AND Password='%s'",

get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? $loginUsername : addslashes($loginUsername), get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? $password : addslashes($password));


$LoginRS = mysql_query($LoginRS__query, $Login) or die(mysql_error());

$loginFoundUser = mysql_num_rows($LoginRS);

if ($loginFoundUser) {

$loginStrGroup = "";


//declare two session variables and assign them

$GLOBALS['MM_Username'] = $loginUsername;

$GLOBALS['MM_UserGroup'] = $loginStrGroup;


//register the session variables




if (isset($_SESSION['PrevUrl']) && false) {

$MM_redirectLoginSuccess = $_SESSION['PrevUrl'];


header("Location: " . $MM_redirectLoginSuccess );


else {

header("Location: ". $MM_redirectLoginFailed );
