Hi all,
I'm working on a login system for my site. But when I use mysql_num_rows I get an error

"Warning: mysql_num_rows() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/patrickm129/patthepcwizard.com/login02.php on line 25"

. I'd really appreciate it if you would be able to solve this with me.

P.S.: The error is in login02.php.

	//Accesses users
	$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE login='$username'");
	//Checks if users do not exist (Checks rows)
	$num_result = mysql_num_rows($query);
	echo $num_result;
}
else
	die("Opps! It looks like you left a field empty!");
?>

//Accesses users
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE login='$username'");
//Checks if users do not exist (Checks rows)
if($query)
{
	$num_result = mysql_num_rows($query);
	echo $num_result;
}
else
{
	echo 'No result in select query';
	exit;
}

Try this and post output.

I think you miss to close the form </form>
try to

//in login02.php
//after <?
//add
print_r($_POST); to see if field empty or not
