PHP Login Script Example

This PHP login script example is a very simple login system which you can use as a base for your future projects. You should note that it needs to be secured before using on a live system. Some things to do before using it: md5 the password and compare against a md5 encrypted version of the submitted form password, set cookie which can be then checked at the admin.php page if login was successful.

$user = "user";
$pass = "pass";
$access = false; // deny access by default

if($_REQUEST['username']==$user and 
// checks if username and password are correct
	$access = true;
else // username or password are wrong
	$error = true;

	echo "

Login Error

"; } if($access === true){ header("Location: ./admin.php"); die(); // login successful // redirect to real page } $thispage = htmlentities($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'], ENT_QUOTES); ?> <form action="" method="POST">

If you don’t like request based logins, you may also use PHP’s HTTP authentication.
