[SOLVED] Registration/Adding members to database

Recommended Posts

OK, I went through the code and fixed any errors that I could find. Apparently my "/" should have been "\".

 

The reason you aren't seeing anything is because of "/" in the meta tags. The "/" confused it. The page simply isn't being transfered over.

 

I've updated the info, so you should just be able to copy and past the two files and it should work.

 

signup.php

<html>
<head>
	<title>Sign Up</title>
</head>

<body>
	<?php
		echo "<form action=\"check.php\" method=\"post\">";
			if ($_SESSION['short_username'] == TRUE)
			{
				echo "Your username was too short!<br />";
				$_SESSION['short_username'] = FALSE;
			}

			if ($_SESSION['bad_username'] == TRUE)
			{
				echo "Usernames may only contain alphanumeric characters, dashes (-) and underscores (_)<br />";
				$_SESSION['bad_username'] = FALSE;
			}
			echo "Username: <input type=\"text\" name=\"username\" /><br />";

			if ($_SESSION['short_password'] == TRUE)
			{
				echo "Your password was too short!<br />";
				$_SESSION['short_password'] = FALSE;
			}

			if ($_SESSION['bad_password'] == TRUE)
			{
				echo "Passwords may only contain alphanumeric characters.<br />";
				$_SESSION['bad_password'] = FALSE;
			}
			echo "Password: <input type=\"password\" name=\"password\" /><br />";

			if ($_SESSION['match_password'] == TRUE)
			{
				echo "Your passwords did not match!<br />";
				$_SESSION['match_password'] = FALSE;
			}
			echo "Verify Password: <input type=\"password\" name=\"varpassword\" /><br />";

			if ($_SESSION['bad_email'] == TRUE)
			{
				echo "You have entered an invalid E-mail address.<br />";
				$_SESSION['bad_email'] = FALSE;
			}
			echo "E-mail: <input type=\"text\" name=\"email\" /><br />";
			echo "<input type=\"submit\" value=\"Sign Up\" />";
		echo "</form>";
	?>
</body>
</html>

If this doesn't work, I will be back in about 5 hours. Hopefully you won't have any problems..

LOL well, Im really serious about learning this language and putting that site together. Im not gonna stop till its done.

 

OK .. I enter fake info on the form .. it brings me to check.php but redirects me back to signup.php .. Im sure thats a good thing .. But I'm not seeing "You're username was too short" or "passwords didnt match" which I know I should be seeing.

This is gonna be really useful thread for people LOL

 

I was getting this error also, but I fixed it by putting the dash at the end and it works. It probably thought it was range between those characters, dont see why.

 

if (preg_match("/[^a-zA-Z0-9_-.@]/", $_POST['email']))

 

Warning: preg_match() [<function.preg-match>]: Compilation failed: range out of order in character class at offset 13 but its still just redirecting back to signup.php

The problem is so obvious for any one who has been doing php for a while!

The sessions where actually being recorded because we never started the session.

 

Any time you use sessions on a page, you must have this:

session_start();

 

at the start of the page!

I updated my last post. I forgot to change the preg_match again...

 

And you are correct if the dash (-) is in between to other thingys it will not work.

Notice the "a-z" that means look for letters from a to z. Dash needs to be by its self...

Already fixed that cause I got an error.

 

Now when I do !$ in the fields it comes back and says username and all that was too short. YAY!

 

But .. when I enter actual information, it redirects back to signup.php (w/o it saying username was short and such)

You have a database right?

You have a table right?

In that table you will have columns such as username, password, email, and id right?

 

When new data is entered, you get what is called a "row".

It is in that row, where the information is.

Now, to see that row, you will need to navigate to that database, to that table, and then at the top you'll see a little button that says "Brows". When you click that, if you have rows, it will display the rows.

Hold on a few minutes, I just might be able to get a server running on this machine....

My windows partition is fried and I have to run the server off of my flash drive!

 

I broke my linux drive about a week ago, I'm working on that but I can't get it to work. If my linux box was working, we would have had this done on the first few posts! All my scripts are on that drive. And wouldn't you know it, I don't yet have backups... :'(

Yes, that is true....

 

Well, I am able to run the server like all the others, but I still have the same problem.

 

Anyways, we need to invoke each error one by one.

 

Type in this information in the field and note the response. We will start with the username. You should only get one error each time.

Username: ri

password: george

varpassword: george

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get?

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie$%

password: george

varpassword: george

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get?

 

 

 

Now to try the passwords

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: ge

varpassword: ge

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get?

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george$

varpassword: george$

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get?

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george

varpassword: ritchie

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get?

 

 

 

 

Now for the email...

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george

varpassword: george

email: r2

 

What error did you get?

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george$

varpassword: george$

email: ritchie@ge#&(!ge.net

 

What error did you get?

Username: ri

password: george

varpassword: george

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get? (Username too short)

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie$%

password: george

varpassword: george

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get? (Usernames may only contain alphanumeric characters, dashes (-) and underscores (_))

 

 

 

Now to try the passwords

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: ge

varpassword: ge

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get? (Your password was too short!)

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george$

varpassword: george$

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get? (Passwords may only contain alphanumeric characters.)

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george

varpassword: ritchie

email: ritchie@george.net

 

What error did you get? (Your passwords did not match!)

 

 

 

 

Now for the email...

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george

varpassword: george

email: r2

 

What error did you get? (You have entered an invalid E-mail address.)

 

 

 

Then try:

Username: ritchie

password: george$

varpassword: george$

email: ritchie@ge#&(!ge.net

 

What error did you get? (Passwords may only contain alphanumeric characters. and You have entered an invalid E-mail address.)

Ok... Add this line:

die();

 

Right before this line:

//If something went wrong, send them back to fix their mistakes

 

 

Then run the script again with:

Username: ritchie

password: ritchie

varpassword: ritchie

email: ritchie@gunz.net

 

Now what happens?

Right, the die() function tells php to stop parsing the information. By telling it to stop at that point, it tells me that everything above that point is not causing the problem.

 

Now, move the die() function that you just entered to right above this line:

//They failed the exam

 

so it would be:

//If something went wrong, send them back to fix their mistakes

if ($pass == FALSE)

{

die();

//They failed the exam

//For some reason they have failed or check system

 

//You will need to send the back to fix the problem before we continue

echo "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"1;url=signup.php\">";

 

//I like to kill the script at this point.

die();

}

 

Tell me what it does...
