I have a script with no errors but when I login it comes back to blank fields in 1 second. Can't get in to make changes/settings.

Submitting a wrong login will bring up a wrong pw message. I know the user/pw is correct because I saw it in phpmyadmin.

Thanks

Posting the existing code might help solving the problem.

Hi,

Yes... but not being a PHP person I don't know which files to post.
Admin folder does not have much or anything covering the problem that I can see.

Here is connect.php

Thanks,
L-D

<?php

include "connect.php";

    $settings = mysql_query ('select * from settings') or die(mysql_error());
    $settingrecord = mysql_fetch_array($settings);

    while ($settingrecord = mysql_fetch_array($settings)) {

For a start post a file that contains the login form. If you see an action attribute in the form tag and if it points to some other php file, post code in that file. For example if this is the form tag code:

<form method="post" action="process_form.php">

post the code from the process_form.php file.

Here is the login source code..

<center>
        <form method="POST" action="loginnow.php"><br>
        Admin Id:<br><input type="text" name="Adminid" value=""><br>
        Password:<br><input type="password" name="Password" value=""><br>
        <input type="submit" value="Login">
        </form>
        </center>

Here is loginnow.php

<?php

session_start();

include "../adminheader.php";
include "../config.php";
include "../style.php";

$ID = $_POST['Adminid'];
$Password = $_POST['Password'];

// errorchecking first:

if (empty($Password)) {
   echo "Password field is empty, please click your browsers 'back' button.";
   exit;
   }

if (empty($ID)) {
   echo "Admin id field is empty, please click your browsers 'back' button.";
   exit;
   }

if(($Password != $adminpw) || ($ID != $adminid))
  {
    echo "Error. Wrong Admin Login.";
    exit;
  }
else
  {
  $_SESSION["alogin"];
  $alogin = true;
  //header("Location: index.php");
  echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="0;URL=index.php">';
  }

include "../footer.php";
?>

If pasword and ID are OK then the code between lines 31 and 34 should execute:

$_SESSION["alogin"];
$alogin = true;
//header("Location: index.php");
echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="0;URL=index.php">';

Successful login would (presumably) redirect you to some admin page. On successful login your code attempts redirection to index.php. Is this the admin page or the login page? Additionaly line $_SESSION["alogin"]; does nothing useful. I think this session variable should be assigned some value.

I would suggest you figure out what is the target page for successful login and change the above lines to something like:

$_SESSION["alogin"] = $somevariable; // I am guessing this
$alogin = true;
header("Location: someAdminPage.php"); // I am guessing this
exit();

Ummm... no. Because I really don't know exactly just what to change to what. I need to be held by the hand! I can cut 'n paste but that's it.

If you could take a section, modify it I can put it in there.

Thanks,

I do not garanteeu that the code below will work. It is meant to show where to put the changes. See the comments in the changed code.

<?php

session_start();

include "../adminheader.php";
include "../config.php";
include "../style.php";

$ID = $_POST['Adminid'];
$Password = $_POST['Password'];

// errorchecking first:

if (empty($Password)) {
   echo "Password field is empty, please click your browsers 'back' button.";
   exit;
   }

if (empty($ID)) {
   echo "Admin id field is empty, please click your browsers 'back' button.";
   exit;
   }

if(($Password != $adminpw) || ($ID != $adminid))
  {
    echo "Error. Wrong Admin Login.";
    exit;
  } else {

    // --------------------
    // this bit has changed
    // --------------------

    // I am guessing this since I do not know the logic
    $_SESSION["alogin"] = $somevariable; 

    // maybe this one goes into $_SESSION["alogin"]
    // if yes put if before the above line
    $alogin = true; 

    // this redirects to rhe target page
    // I called it someAdminPage.php, you have to name it by it's real name
    header("Location: someAdminPage.php"); // I am guessing this

    // this preventively stops the script
    exit();
  }

include "../footer.php";

Hi broj1,

I'm going to work on this 2nite.

While in admin folder I saw addnav.php. It appears that I can add another level. It does not mention it in settings.php.??? ...or anywhere else.

I can't try it because I still can't get in. Is that what it is?

<?php

session_start();

include "../adminheader.php";
include "../config.php";
include "../style.php";
if( $_SESSION ["alogin"] ) {
        ?><table>
        <tr>
        <td width="15%" valign=top><br>
        <? include("adminnavigation.php"); ?>
        </td>
        <td valign="top" align="center"><br><br> <?
    echo "<font size=2 face='$fonttype' color='$fontcolour'><p><b><center>";
     ?>
    <center>
    <p>Add a navigation button to the members area.</p>
    <form method="POST" action="addnavnow.php">
    Name:<br><input type="text" name="name" value=""><br>
    Url:<br><input type="text" name="url" value=""><br>

    </tr>
    </table>
    <?
    }

else  {
    echo "Unauthorised Access!";
    }

include "../footer.php";

?>

addnavnow.php

<?php

session_start();

include "../adminheader.php";
include "../config.php";
include "../style.php";

$name = $_POST['name'];
$url = $_POST['url'];
$seq = $_POST['seq'];
$memtype = $_POST['memtype'];

if( $_SESSION ["alogin"] ) {
        ?><table>
        <tr>
        <td width="15%" valign=top><br>
        <? include("adminnavigation.php"); ?>
        </td>

    echo "<font size=2 face='$fonttype' color='$fontcolour'><p><b><center>";
    $query = "insert into navigation (name,url,status,seq,memtype) VALUES ('$name','$url','ON',$seq,'$memtype')";
    $result = mysql_query ($query)
         or die ("Insert failed");
    echo "Your new navigation has been saved.";
    ?> <p>Click <a href=navigation.php>here</a> to go back<p>
    </table>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <?
    }

else  {
    echo "Unauthorised Access!";
    }

include "../footer.php";
mysql_close($dblink);
?>

Hi,

You know what? Thanks for your help but I'm so unqualified to do what you ask that I have to excuse myself because I'll foul it up. You usually chat with PHP people, not in my case.

Also, I goofed, settings is part of the admin area. So I'm posting index.php.

<?php

session_start();

include "../adminheader.php";
include "../config.php";
include "../style.php";

if( $_SESSION["alogin"] ) {
    ?>
        <table width="100%">
        <tr>
        <td width="15%" valign=top><br>
        <? include("adminnavigation.php"); ?>
        </td>
        <td valign="top" align="center"><br><br> <?
        echo "<font size=2 face='$fonttype' color='$fontcolour'><p><center>";
        ?>
          <p><H2>Welcome to the admin area!</H2></p>
          <p>First you MUST go to 'Settings' to set up all variables of your program</p>
          <p>To edit the text on your pages, go to 'edit pages'.</p>
          <p>Use 'Email Members' to send to all contact emails addresses.</p>
          <p>To add further buttons (or disable existing buttons) in the members area, click 'Edit Navigation'.</p>
          <p>&nbsp;</p>
          </td>
      </tr>
</table>
    <?
  }
else {
    ?>
        <center>
        <form method="POST" action="loginnow.php"><br>
        Admin Id:<br><input type="text" name="Adminid" value=""><br>
        Password:<br><input type="password" name="Password" value=""><br>
        <input type="submit" value="Login">
        </form>
        </center>
    <?
}
echo "<font size=2 face='$fonttype' color='$fontcolour'><p><b><center>";
include "../footer.php";

?>

It would seem that the problem is in the area of index, loginnow and ? What is strange is that it has worked before and I had no motivation or knowhow to modify it. Just a reminder, when loging in it pops back to the login in a second. Inserting wrong info gets a wrong pw error.
The pw is right according to phpmyadmin.

Thanks,
L-D

What is actualy your goal? Not knowing PHP and messing arround with login (or any other) scripts will get you in trouble sooner or later. If you want to build or maintain a web application the first prerequisite is to know the language and be familiar with technologies used otherwise you might be in for a trouble. Unpurposely you could expose confidential data or make damage to the customer or users.

YES! You are right. I just want it to work. I'd look into a professional consultant and say "Here, fix this" but funds are tight so I have to make do. Looking back I should have learned PHP but I didn't know I'd be needing it. Not looking forward to learning it either. :-/ Chineese, maybe.

No, I definitely would not want a site with poor security. It's an old script too.
