[code]<?PHP
//convert the field values to simple variables

$username = $_POST['username'];
$password = $_POST['password'];

//set the database connection variables

$dbHost = "localhost";
$dbUser = "";
$dbPass = "";
$dbDatabase = "wpthes_mobilegrades";

//connect to the database

$db = mysql_connect("$dbHost", "$dbUser", "$dbPass") or die ("Error connecting to database.");

mysql_select_db("$dbDatabase", $db) or die ("Couldn't select the database.");

$result=mysql_query("select login_id from login where username='$username' AND password='$password'", $db);

//check that at least one row was returned

$rowCheck = mysql_num_rows($result);
if($rowCheck > 0){
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){

  //successful login code will go here...
  header("Location: period.php");
  
  }

  }
  else {

  //if nothing is returned by the query, unsuccessful login code goes here...

  echo 'Incorrect login name or password. Please try again.';
  }
  
  ?> [/code]
