Always Incorrect Credentials when logging in

Go to solution Solved by gizmola,

Hello, I'm currently using Yii2 Framework in developing my project. I encounter an error that whenever I try to login it always says "Incorrect Username or Password" even though my password is correct. I checked the user table in phpmyadmin and the password is getting hashed and there's no problem since the user information is stored in the user table without problems but if I try to login it doesn't accept the username or password. Anyone encounter a similar issue like mine?


Here's the SignupForm.php

class SignupForm extends Model
    public $username;
    public $email;
    public $password;
    public $first_name;
    public $middle_name;
    public $last_name;
    public $contact;
    public $birth_date;
    public $type;
    public $external_type;
    public $status;
    public $region_id;
    public $barangay_id;
    public $province_id;
    public $city_municipal_id;

     * @inheritdoc
    public function rules()
        return [
            ['username', 'trim'],
            ['username', 'required'],
            ['username', 'unique', 'targetClass' => '\common\models\User', 'message' => 'This username has already been taken.'],
            ['username', 'string', 'min' => 2, 'max' => 255],

            ['email', 'trim'],
            ['email', 'required'],
            ['email', 'email'],
            ['email', 'string', 'max' => 255],
            ['email', 'unique', 'targetClass' => '\common\models\User', 'message' => 'This email address has already been taken.'],

            ['password', 'required'],
            ['password', 'string', 'min' => 6],

            ['first_name', 'required'],
            ['first_name', 'string', 'max' => 45],

            ['middle_name', 'string', 'max' => 45],

            ['last_name', 'required'],
            ['last_name', 'string', 'max' => 45],

            ['contact', 'required'],
            ['contact', 'string', 'max' => 11],

            ['birth_date', 'required'],

            ['type', 'required'],
            ['type', 'string', 'max' => 45],

            ['external_type', 'string', 'max' => 45],

            ['status', 'string', 'max' => 45],

            ['region_id', 'required'],
            ['barangay_id', 'required'],
            ['province_id', 'required'],
            ['city_municipal_id', 'required'],


     * Signs user up.
     * @return User|null the saved model or null if saving fails
    public function signup()
        if (!$this->validate()) {
            return null;
        $user = new User();
        $user->username = $this->username;
        $user->email = $this->email;

        $user->first_name = $this->first_name;
        $user->middle_name = $this->middle_name;
        $user->last_name = $this->last_name;
        $user->contact = $this->contact;
        $user->birth_date = $this->birth_date;
        $user->type = $this->type;
        $user->external_type = $this->external_type;
        $user->status = $this->status;
        $user->region_id = $this->region_id;
        $user->barangay_id = $this->barangay_id;
        $user->province_id = $this->province_id;
        $user->city_municipal_id = $this->city_municipal_id;

        return $user->save() ? $user : null;

function login

public function login()
        if ($this->validate()) {
            return Yii::$app->user->login($this->getUser(), $this->rememberMe ? 3600 * 24 * 30 : 0);
        } else {
            return false;

function signup

public function actionSignup()
        $model = new SignupForm();
        if ($model->load(Yii::$app->request->post())) {
            if ($user = $model->signup()) {
                if (Yii::$app->getUser()->login($user)) {
                    return $this->goHome();

        return $this->render('signup', [
            'model' => $model,

I see no parameters being passed to your login function. How is it supposed to be getting the username/email & password?


Updated Code:

 public function actionLogin()
        if (!Yii::$app->user->isGuest) {
            return $this->goHome();

        $model = new LoginForm();
        if ($model->load(Yii::$app->request->post()) && $model->login()) {
            return $this->goBack();
        } else {
            return $this->render('login', [
                'model' => $model,

I tried using the default user table and it works perfectly fine. However if I use my own user table with the other additional columns it doesn't work.
