I am working with a login page to use with an application that we are
planning to make available as a web service. The login.php page itself works
correctly, however when I try and pass parameters to the login page the are
not being recognized by the login.php page.
Here is the basic code that I am dealing with to attempt to the the
$username = $HTTP_POST_VARS['username'];
$password = $HTTP_POST_VARS['password'];
$username = $_POST['username'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
When I enter the url
Where localhost is the ip address of my server and ****** is the password of
the user that is logging in, I am not having the username questioned and the
login.php isacting as if I have not entered any parameters.
Why are the parameters not being accepted?
I am using php version 5.2.6 on a ubuntu linux box
