Hello,

I posted a similar issue earlier - I fixed that issue that was throwing error messages and now my data from a form is being dumped to my table, well, most of it.

It is not recording the Username or Password fields and I have absolutely no idea why - There have been some changes made by another programmer and I am trying to unravel what they may have done. Originally, everything worked and was dumped into my table just fine.

Thank you for any help in advance!

<?php

define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
define('DB_NAME', '******');
define('DB_USER','*******');
define('DB_PASSWORD','******');

$con=mysql_connect(DB_HOST,DB_USER,DB_PASSWORD) or die("Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysql_error());
$db=mysql_select_db(DB_NAME,$con) or die("Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysql_error());


function NewUser()
{

    $userName = $_POST['userName'];
    $email = $_POST['email'];
    $password =  $_POST['password'];
    $countries = $_POST ['countries'];
    $city =  $_POST['city'];
    $company = $_POST ['company'];
    $state = $_POST ['state'];//Added 11/3/2014

    $query = "INSERT INTO Table3 (userName,email,password,countries,city,company,state) VALUES    ('$userName','$email','$password', '$countries','$city','$company', '$state')";


    $data = mysql_query ($query)or die(mysql_error());
    if($data)
    {
    echo "YOUR REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED...";
    }
}

function SignUp()
{
if(!empty($_POST['user']))   //checking the 'user' name which is from Sign-Up.html, is it empty or have some text
{
    $query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Table3 WHERE userName = '$_POST[user]' AND password = '$_POST[password]'") or die(mysql_error());

    if(!$row = mysql_fetch_array($query) or die(mysql_error()))
    {
        NewUser();
    }
    else
    {
        echo "SORRY...YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED USER...";
    }
}
}
if(isset($_POST['user']))
{
    SignUp();
}

    I thought the problem may be mismatched field names and it appears to be so... <label type="grey" for="signup">Username:</label> <input type="field" type="text" name="user" id="user" value="" size="23")/> <label type="grey" for="email">Password:</label> <input type="field" type="text" name="pass" id="pass" size="23" /> Your sign up form had the following fields: "user" and "pass" However, your fomr handling … Read More

There are so many things that should be updated in this code.

1) Use PDO or mysqli - mysql is deprecated
2) Never place raw input into SQL without sanitizing it - this is not an issue if you use prepared statements and bind values/parameters - but you're using mysql. If you insist on using deprecated code, you MUST use something like mysql_real_escape_string().
3) You do not seem to have a confirm password field. So an user could enter a wrong password and be none the wiser. The chance of this happening if using a confirm field is greatly reduced, but not obviated entirely.
4) If this is a sign up, make it as easy as possible. Do all the extra fields really need to be filled on sign up? Can't they be filled in a profile page?
5) A signup form typically has:

username
password
cofnirm password
email

fields. However, emails are sometimes used as usernames or at least used as a option for an username in login forms.

6) There is no data validation. Can a user have a password set to zero length? It seems it can in this code.
7) There is no hashing of the password, so it will be stored as plaintext. Erk - you better hope that your db isn't hacked or all your users passwords will be visible. If you store emails, usernames and plaintext passwords, you have now effectively given malicious users everything they need to totally ruin a user's online life. An it will all be down to you. Sorry if that's a little strong, but the user places his/her trust in you to keep their data safe. Whether that's naive or not is besides the point, you have a duty to keep their data safe.

8) Your select query is using password in the SQL. Why? A user could therefore set up a duplicate username if they use a different password to the existing member. The least dangerous result of which may be that the new member may not be able to log in. The ramifications of duplicate usernames could be wide-ranging indeed.

In conclusion, scrap the whole lot and start again. This is VERY UNSAFE.

Thank you for your help and honesty. Much appreciated :)

Thank you for your reply and honesty, diafol.

At this point this code is still in a build mode, hence, no MySQLi or many of the other aspects you have pointed out.

I really do not wish to scrap everything but I may be forced to do so.

I am working on it slowly and it is far from complete - I am glad you brought these issues to the forefront for me to ponder.

As to why I am collecting specific data in the form as you pointed out? That is classified. ;)

ETA: All data is validated for the form in another script.

Thanks again,
Matthew

No problem Matthew. Sorry if it sounded like a lecture. I remember when I started with php - I had security holes the size of Cygnus X-1. Making something secure is a slog, even for seasoned professionals.

Wrt mysql - IMO it's pointless using it even for simple build or proof of concept type scripts. PDO and mysqli are just as accessible once you get to grips with them.

Password hashing - check out the "new" functions - password_hash and password_verify - they're beautiful - seriously - but you do need a recent PHP release - I forget which specific one. It'll all be in the manual.

But keep it up! I've learned more in the last 2 months than in about 15 years.

diafol,

I appreciate you insights and encouragement. No, it did not sound like a lecture but an informed individual sharing very important knowledge - That is one reason this site is so great!

I graduated from school for software engineering but I shall admit, I am still learning (And that is a good thing).

Kind regards,
Matthew

But, I am still not understanding the basics of why the Username and Password fields from the form are not saving to the DB; All other fields are being saved.

ETA: And, this used to all work before just fine. My hosting company apparently deleted the table I was using and I started over from scratch this morning. Errors galore!

Thank you in advance!

I can provide the HTML, but what do mean specifically by the "SQL dump of the relevant tables"?

I thought the problem may be mismatched field names and it appears to be so...

<label type="grey" for="signup">Username:</label>
<input type="field" type="text" name="user" id="user" value="" size="23")/>

<label type="grey" for="email">Password:</label>
<input type="field" type="text" name="pass" id="pass" size="23" />

Your sign up form had the following fields: "user" and "pass"

However, your fomr handling code has this...

$userName = $_POST['userName'];
$password =  $_POST['password'];

The form fields 'userName' and 'password' do not exist. Try...

$userName = $_POST['user'];
$password =  $_POST['pass'];

diafol:

Yes, that worked perfectly! Thank you so much for your help, I truly appreciate it. I was literally losing sleep over this issue last night.

This proves to me that I must learn PHP/MySQL better. I miss the tiny things that turn out to be huge problems.

I will remember this lesson for the future!

Kind regards,
Matthew D.

No worries. If it's any consolation, we all miss simple things and it's only with experience that we get the "doh, of course" moment. Happy coding.
