Hello everyone,

I am trying to create a PHP login script using cookies but am having some
troubles. Here is my setup

    index.php -> authenticate.php -> admin.php

I want a login form on index.php that allows me to login with my username
and password and then passes $_POST['username'] and $_POST['password'] to

Then authenticate.php authenticates against a database of allowed users
(Which I already have setup and it works fine), if a valid user has
entered the correct information then admin.php is loaded...


...the admin.php code would look something like the following..

Code: [Select]
if (isset($_COOKIE['username'])) {
echo "success!";
} else {
echo "Failure";

So basically I think I need to create a cookie from index.php OR
authenticate.php and then pass the information to admin.php.
I set the cookie like this...

setcookie("Admin", $username);

Which file(index.php OR authenticate.php) do I create the cookie and how
do I access the information in the cookie on admin.php?
