Login problems accessing mysql database

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Im working on a relatively simple script but I am stuck with a login section.

It seems to only accept one of the entires in the database but I need multiple login details. Heres the code, if someone can tell me why this isn't working it would be a great help

[code]$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM advisors")
or die(mysql_error()); 
$row = mysql_fetch_array( $result );
$dbname = $row['name'];
$dbpassword = $row['password'];
$dbusername = $row['username'];
if ($username==$dbusername && $password==$dbpassword)
{ include("welcome.php");
session_register("sr1");
session_register("sr2");
session_register("sr3");
$sr1 = $dbusername;
$sr2 = $dbname;
$sr3 = $dbpassword;
} else {
echo "Your username & password was not found, please click below and try again";[/code]

[code]so... its not checking both username and password, and that is a weird way to check the login. should it be something like [code=php:0]$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM advisors WHERE username='".$username."'");[/code] then check if the user exists then check the password etc...
