Login always redirects to lost password

Hi guys

I'm experiencing a problem on my site - when I log in with the correct username and password, I'm always redirected to the send lost password page. The send lost password page works but the login page is not redirecting to the users_profile.php page Here's the authenticate user server behavior code on users_login.php:

<?php
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $ucpntx,
"database" => $database_ucpntx,
"tableName" => "users",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"idusers".$WA_Auth_Separator."userPassword"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:"") ."".$WA_Auth_Separator."".((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"int".$WA_Auth_Separator."text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"idusers"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"idusers"),
"successRedirect" => "users_Profile.php",
"failRedirect" => "users_EmailPW.php",
"gotoPreviousURL" => TRUE,
"keepQueryString" => TRUE
);

WA_AuthenticateUser($WA_Auth_Parameter);
}
?>

in the authenticate users server behavior, you are using the idusers column for the user name.

This appears to be the Primary key column of the table?

you should change this to use a username or email column from the table.

So in the lines:

"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"idusers"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"idusers"),

it should be

"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"userEmail"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"userEmail"),

since I'm using the email address as the unique identifier.

Thanks for your quick response!

no, leave those lines alone.


dont change this in the code Mark, change it in the UI.

Double Click on the Authenticate user Server behavior, leave the first step as is, click the next button to go to the second step.

on the second step change it to use the email column as the username column instead of the idusers column.

Thanks Jason:

The second screen does not allow me to use the email address - just the form variables for Username and Password, which is what I have selected (see attached image).

Do I need to add a recordset to pull the user data in the server behavior?

Thanks!

select the first idusers column and click the minus button to remove it.


Then click the plus button and select the UserEmail column. Click the lightning bolt next to value and select the username form element.

OK I understand what's going on - but the second screen is where you set up the comparison, so should it not be:

userName = <?php echo((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:""); ?>
userPassword = <?php echo((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:""); ?>

to compare those two columns with their correponding form values. I thought I had defined the unique column to be the email address so that if a user registers using an email address that has already been used will be sent to the login page as they are already registered, so perhaps I had misinformed you. Now when I log in I'm taken to the users_Profile page. Everything appears to be working correctly now. Thanks!

if you are using the username for comparison then, yes, that is how it should be.

setting the email column to be unique has nothing to do with the comparison used for login
