I want to include a php file after an succesfully login.

Let's suposed that I have a login form on index.php. If the login was ok I want to include a php file with some content instead of the login form.

Something like:

<?
if($_POST['ok']){
     require('content.php');
} else {
//login form
}
?>

 

It's ok to include in the code the name of the file that you have on server ? From security point of view.

 

Thanks

Typically login systems are a bit more complex, but this would be a very basic example:

 

<?php
if($_POST['login_attempt']){
    //Attempt Login
}

if($_SESSION['logged_in']){
    require('account.php');
} else{
    require('loginform.html');
}

So if I want to include multiple php file using the link for exemple:

 

index.php?page=account

or

index.php?page=add

 

I can use:

<?php
if($_SESSION['logged_in']){
    require($_GET['page'] . '.php');
} else{
    require('loginform.html');
}

 

It's ok ?

its not the end of the world, but it wouldn't take a genius to work out what was happening.

instead of calling it page for example call it something irrelevant. or pass a number that the receiving script can convert to a file with a switch statement for example.
