  1. I believe it is working now. It was a database problem. I changed the way the website handled passwords but forgot to change the structure of the database column. So it was truncating the password. Thanks for your help.
  2. Where does the code sit that actually prevents someone from logging in if they are not set to accept cookies? I would like to remove that and see if that is the differece? I have been using your code for years and have older sites with the login.inc.php coding in the includes folder. They always worked. i guess I could go back to that but I would like to use the most updated coding available.
  3. This part of the login code does not seem to be working. I know the information is in the database and the activation field says NULL. I believe that the browser - Firefox on a Mac - is accepting cookies. I have tried this with several users and they all have the same password. I am getting the error message that indicates that the Email and Password does not match those on file. I am set up to use PHP 7. // Query the database: $q = "SELECT user_id, first_name, user_level, pass FROM users WHERE email='$e' AND active IS NULL"; $r = mysqli_query($dbc, $q) or trigger_error("Query: $q\n<br>MySQL Error: " . mysqli_error($dbc)); if (@mysqli_num_rows($r) == 1) { // A match was made. // Fetch the values: list($user_id, $first_name, $user_level, $pass) = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM); mysqli_free_result($r);
  4. I believe that I have followed the code to create a "Forget Password" link. However, I am getting an error that seems to indicate that I am asking for a password hash twice - Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_password_hash() (previously declared in /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04aj/b717/nf.xxxxxxxxxxxx/public_html/xxxxxxxxxxxx/TBRMobile/mysqli.inc.php:28) in /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04aj/b717/nf.xxxxxxxxxx/public_html/xxxxxxx/TBRMobile/mysqli.inc.php on line 33 ---- I have x'd out certain areas of this error on purpose. My config file and mysqli file are almost exact. I do not use a header file.
  5. I am also having a similar type of problem but not in all instances. I am testing on a live site. MOST of the time the email will get the activation link but when I click the link I get the message saying that the account could not be activated. BUT the information is in the database and the column says, "NULL".
  6. Hello Larry, Thanks for replying so quickly. I know you are very busy. I went back through all the files and rechecked everything and then made sure that it matched up exactly to your coding. So NOW it is working but I really don't know what went wrong. I had VARCHAR256 in the password column but would that have made any difference? I had also gone to another source for some help and they continually tell me that my coding is old and is being depreciated. Also, I know my hosting company is using PHP 5.6. At this point I am not sure how PHP is handling password encryption. I have learned a tremendous amount over the years because of your books but just find it hard to keep up with the tour when things are changing all the time. Thanks again. Marie
  7. I am having the exact same problem or so it seems. So I have tried several different things and I think now I have done exactly what was suggested above. However, I am still getting the same error message - "The email address and password entered do not match those on file." My fake registrants all have the same password but I have truncated the table and started again. My website is based on the code in Chapter 18 but does not require a person to activate their account so this is the code. Thanks for your help. if ($e && $p) { // If everything's OK. // Query the database: $q = "SELECT id, username, pass FROM users WHERE email='$e' AND active = 1 "; $r = mysqli_query($db, $q) or trigger_error("Query: $q\n<br>MySQL Error: " . mysqli_error($db)); if (@mysqli_num_rows($r) == 1) { // A match was made.
  8. Sorry about the double posting above. I was hoping to delete my original post so I could correct it. The error message refers to line 137 not 37. Anyway, the original code I used came from the first edition of the eCommerce book which uses "rows". So the original code would have written <p><h2>Hello $row[1]!</p>.
  9. I have been updating a website with the scripting from this book. A piece of code I have is not working with the new php and I have reworked this several times. The following is the error message that I get in the server error log - PHP Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04aj/b717/nf.xxxxxxxxx/public_html/xxxxxxxx.com/Login.php on line 137 Line 37 would be the following - if (mysqli_num_rows($r) = $username) { <?php // Show the user info or the login form: if (isset($_SESSION['user_id'])) { // Show basic user options: $q = "SELECT user_id, username FROM users WHERE user_id={$_SESSION['user_id']}"; $r = mysqli_query ($db, $q); //if (mysqli_num_rows($r) > 0) { if (mysqli_num_rows($r) = $username) { //while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM)) { while ($r = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM)) { // Display the username and heading echo "<p><h2a>Hello $username!</p>"; } } Thanks
  10. I have reworked this page and code several times since posting and believe I have been able to correct that problem. I changed an area that said pass1 to password. NOW I am wondering how to format the error messages so that they are in the body of the form like they were in the eCommerce scripts OR how to format them so that they look good rather than just spreading across the top of the page. Can one use CSS in the PHP script?
  11. <p><label for="password"><strong>Password</strong></label> <?php create_form_input('password1', 'password', $reg_errors); ?></p> <?php if (isset($trimmed['password1'])) echo $trimmed['password1']; ?></p> <p class="noticeType"> Must be between 6 and 20 characters long, with at least one lowercase letter, one uppercase letter, and one number.</p>
  12. Sorry on my computer I don't seem to see my actual message, just the code. I get an "undefined index" error when I use this code on the first line - 'password1'. Thanks. Marie
  13. // Check for a password and match against the confirmed password: if (strlen($trimmed['password1']) >= 10) { if ($trimmed['password1'] == $trimmed['password2']) { $p = password_hash($trimmed['password1'], PASSWORD_DEFAULT); } else { echo '<p class="error">Your password did not match the confirmed password!</p>'; } } else { echo '<p class="error">Please enter a valid password!</p>'; }
