i see... so the pattern you need is


$atLeast = 2;

$pattern = '#\d{1}#';

if(preg_match_all($pattern, $password, $a) > $atLeast) {
        echo 'password ok; contains at least '.$atLeast.' digits.';

is this correct: you want to check if there are two letters in the password wich do not surround a digit? if so this is what you need:


// dies
$password = 'alfgoesswimming';
// dies too
$password = 'a2lf4g2o4e7s9s3w9i0m5m7i0n3g';
// survives
$password = 'a2l5f4g2o4e7s9s3w9i0m5m7i0n3g';

$found = array();

$pattern = '#[a-z_]{2}#i';

if(preg_match_all($pattern, $password, $found)>0) {
        die('You must have a number between 2 letters in your password ...
} else {
        die('password accepted');
