i have a .htaccess file but when i try to log in that when i have the problem

That doesn't make much sense. Could you elaborate?

Is the error url what you expect? /tutoringcareer/php/user.php

Or is it supposed to be something else?

That code formatting has gone to hell. ANy chance of you reformatting? Just select all the code and press TAB - that should indent it all. Also, there seems to be hundreds of lines of code here. Just include what's required - we have limited time in which to help you.

You don't seem to have a session_start() at the top of the page. You need one of these on every page in order to propagate the session variables.

i inserted the session_start(); in the users.php and the same this is going on. is ['e'] the right vareble to be used or shoud i be using ['u']. i did try it with the ['u'] but it return the same problem.

if(isset($_GET["e"])){
    $u = preg_replace('#[^a-z0-9]#i', '', $_GET['e']);
} 
// Select the member from the users table
$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$e' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1";
$user_query = mysqli_query($db_conx, $sql);
// Now make sure that user exists in the table
$numrows = mysqli_num_rows($user_query);
if($numrows < 1){
    echo "That user does not exist or is not yet activated, press back";
    exit(); 
}

  1. You're stripping non alphanumeric characters from the username in the url querystring . OK, but I don't understand why you're doing this - if you bind parameters in a prepared statement (mysqli), there's no need.

  2. Why is the SQL and rest of the code outside the first if block? Surely you don't want the code to execute if there's no $_GET['e']

  3. The SQL is wrong as there's no $e initialised, only $u.

Is there a reason for using the 'u=' as a querystring parameter? Would not a session var, say be more secure? Anybody can change the 'u=' to anything they want. What happens then?

0

i thought the 'u=' was like a target for the ajax. anyway i did a little changes and now it saying mysqli_num_rows() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli_result, boolean given in. so i place or die(mysqli_error()) at the end but same problem

$user_query = mysqli_query($db_conx, $sql);
// Now make sure that user exists in the table
$numrows = mysqli_num_rows($user_query) or die(mysqli_error());
if($numrows < 1){
echo "That user does not exist or is not yet activated, press back";
0

could it be that it is not getting that activated value of 1

$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1";

did i code it right to go get that value

sould i be more specific to which field to get the info from rather that selecting the whole table

Edited by lillorme

Try

if($numrows == 0){

instead.

could it be that it is not getting that activated value of 1

No idea. That's up to you to check. Do this..

$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1";
echo $sql;

Copy and paste the query string output on the screen to the SQL box in PHPMyAdmin and see if you get a record.

sould i be more specific to which field to get the info from rather that selecting the whole table

Shouldn't matter at the moment - we need to get the login working first.

in phphmyadmin

SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE 1 

works
but

 $sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1";
    echo $sql;

did not

Maybe
header("location:user.php?u=".$_SESSION['username']);//single quotes

thanks Tpojka but now am having a problem with

         $sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1";

it is not getting that value of 1
in php my admin

   SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE 1 

works fine

How are these two line related?
SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1
and
SELECT * FROMusersWHERE 1
Why don't you try first line in phpMyAdmin either (with hard coded value for $u)?

if i state it like this is doesn't work

SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1

But it would work if i do this

SELECT * FROM users WHERE peter
0

so could it be that username is not properly define and also $u is not properly define? if so how would i do that?

<!-- ******** user.php ******** -->

<?php

session_start();

include_once("../php_includes/check_login_status.php");
// Initialize any variables that the page might echo
$u = "";
$sex = "Male";
$userlevel = "";
$profile_pic = "";
$profile_pic_btn = "";
$avatar_form = "";
$country = "";
$joindate = "";
$lastsession = "";
// Make sure the _GET username is set, and sanitize it
if(isset($_GET["u"])){
    $u = preg_replace('#[^a-z0-9]#i', '', $_GET['u']);
} else {
    header("location: login.php");
    exit(); 
}
// Select the member from the users table
$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE email='$u' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1";
$user_query = mysqli_query($db_conx, $sql);
// Now make sure that user exists in the table
$numrows = mysqli_num_rows($user_query);
if($numrows == 0){
    echo "That user does not exist or is not yet activated, press back";
    exit(); 
}

am not getting in when i login
it echos "That user does not exist or is not yet activated, press back"

You didn't do as I said. Copy and paste the query from the screen and insert it into phpmyadmin. How is phpmyadmin supposed to know what $u means? It has no meaning.

I'm assuming that your SQL will look something like:

SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='peter' AND activated='1' LIMIT 1

If peter is in the table and you don't get a result then it's your query

Also have

$user_query = mysqli_query($db_conx, $sql) or die(mysqli_error());

That should tell you if there's an error with the query syntax.
