Edited 3 Years Ago by happygeek: fixed formatting

Is all that code from process.php?

I imported it to an editor


line 50 = $UsernameExist = mysql_num_rows($UsernameQuery);

line 61 = // Generate confirmation key for settings which require one

line 70 = // CHECK FOR REQUIRED FIELDS

line 73 = print "<p><font size=\"3\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\" color=\"#FF0000\"><b>Username field cannot be left blank!</b></font></p>";

so something isn't quite right. Could you post us line 50, 61, 70 and 73 from your code? That might make it easier to help.

Sam

Line 50 $SetupRow = mysql_fetch_array($qSetup);
Line 61 $EmailerRow = mysql_fetch_array($qEmailer);
Line 70 $EmailExist = mysql_num_rows($EmailQuery); // Returns 0 if not yet existing
Line 73 $UsernameExist = mysql_num_rows($UsernameQuery);

Thank you for your help!

Line 50 $SetupRow = mysql_fetch_array($qSetup);
Line 61 $EmailerRow = mysql_fetch_array($qEmailer);
Line 70 $EmailExist = mysql_num_rows($EmailQuery); // Returns 0 if not yet existing
Line 73 $UsernameExist = mysql_num_rows($UsernameQuery);

Thank you for your help!

It usually does gives that error if the datatype is different, say if you're searching for "hello" in a int field, it'll return that error.

Two ways to understand further:

1) change addslashes($_POST) to

mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['username'];

2) change your SQL to the following and add or die() -

$qSetup = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `signupsetup`") or die("Error in qSetup: ".mysql_error()); // no where clause?

$qEmailer = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `emailer` WHERE `profile`='$profile'") or die("Error in qEmailer: ".mysql_error());

$EmailExist = mysql_num_rows($EmailQuery) or die("Error in EmailExists: ".mysql_error()) ;	// Returns 0 if not yet existing
$UsernameExist = mysql_num_rows($UsernameQuery) or die("Error in UsernameExist: ".mysql_error());

see if that returns any specific errors?

Sam

I get this error:

Error in qSetup: No database selected

There's something wrong with your connecting to the database then..

$connection = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbusername, $dbpassword);
$db = mysql_select_db($dbname);

make sure you've spelt everything correctly in those variables, remember that SQL is case sensitive, as is php when it comes to variables. Make sure they're exactly the same there in process.php as they are in auth.php.

Sam

On the addslashes do I need to delete the whole line and paste the code you gave me into it?

Yeah, replace

addslashes($_POST['username'];

with

mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['username'];

also to narrow down the problem further change the code at the top of your page to this:

$connection = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbusername, $dbpassword) or die("Could not connect to database: ".mysql_error());
$db = mysql_select_db($dbname) or die("Could not select database: ".mysql_error());
