Hi All,

I need some help with the below code. I have this login code with me and its
working fine with my *localhost 'WAMP' *server. But when I tried to run the
same script on my web host server its not working. Every time its giving me
the same message "*please enter a username and a password*" which is a
condition within the script.


echo var_dump(print_r($_POST));

Are the $_POST['username'] and $_POST['password'] variables present? You didn't post any html form information so I think you could start there.
$username = $_POST['username'];
$password = $_POST['password'];

 if ($username&&$password)

$connect = mysql_connect("localhost", "tutor_root", "admin") or
die("couldn't connect");
mysql_select_db("tutor_register") or die("couldn't find db");

$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM register WHERE username ='$username'");
$numrows = mysql_num_rows($query);
if ($numrows!=1)

//code to login

while ($row =mysql_fetch_assoc($query))
      $dbusername = $row['username'];
      $dbpassword=  $row['password'];

 //check to see if they match

 if ($username==$dbusername&&$password==$dbpassword)
echo "you are in <a href='member.php'>click</a> here to enter the members



 echo "incorrect password";

    die("That user dosen't exist");

      die("pelase enter a username and a password");
