MySQL Caps problem

Go to solution Solved by Psycho,

Recommended Posts

Okay so I have a completely fully functional member system. Login works, register works, In this system I dont let people make two accounts with the same name, however if they have caps in different spots, it works. Any ideas how to prevent this? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

Do a check before you allow a duplicate name, I suppose.


You haven't supplied any information for us to be able to help you. Where is the code you currently use to verify if the names are similar? You should be doing that check directly with a DB check. In that case, as long as you are using an appropriate collation in the DB, it won't matter if the two values have different letters capitalized. But, if you are going to do it with PH code, then you could use strcasecmp()
