Alright, let's try this again. I've started over from scratch and we have got the basic functions working. Everything so far has checked out, but I am still trying to get it to pull the right credentials. I can get it to pull one of the rows out of the database, but not particularly the one I desire. I'm sure I have the wrong SQL command or have it phrased weirdly. Other than that it works just fine.

It pulls the same entry every time, regardless of what I put in the login.

def index(request):

    if 'username' in request.session:
        request.session['username'] = request.session['username']
    else:
        request.session['username'] = ''

    if 'password' in request.session:
        request.session['password']= request.session['password']
    else:
        request.session['password'] = ''

Try these simple functions, which just contain general SQL statements, and see what you get. This assumes that the table name is "postgres" (from your code") and the user name field is named "username" (again from your code). Since we don't know the table name or layout it is impossible to post specific code.

def get_connection():
        connection = pgdb.connect(
            user="postgres",
            password="gobears07",
            database="postgres")
 
        cursor = connection.cursor()

        return connection, cursor

def select_all(cursor):
    cursor.execute("select * from postgres")
    recs_found = cursor.fetchall()

    ## I don't know what type of object pgdb returns
    print type(recs_found)
    print len(recs_found)

def select_user(cursor)
    """ replace 'abc' with a user name that is in the DB
    """
    cursor.execute('select username, password from postgres where username="abc"')
    rec = cursor.fetchone()
    print list(rec)
 
try:
    con, cur = get_connection()
    select_all(cur)
    select_user(cur)
except:
    import traceback
    traceback.print_exc()
