<?php

session_start();

$con = mysqli_connect('localhost',);

mysqli_select_db($con, 'user');;

$s = "select * from username where same = '$username' && password = '$password'";

$result = mysqli_query($con, $s);
$num = mysqli_num_rows($result);

if($num == 1)

    header('location:login.php');
}

?>
Re: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '$s' (T_VARIABLE) in C:\xampp\htdocs 80 80

This is a good failure. Why? Passwords should never be stored like this. Here's the google kicking that old design to the curb.

Code and more about logins, encrypted passwords, salt and more are just a little research away. Here I won't get into that but note it's a very good thing this failed since someone will point out what a bad idea this was.
