Login Form (security assist) Not Working

Thread began 5/22/2012 4:16 pm by ruth265305 | Last modified 5/24/2012 7:06 pm by ruth265305 | 974 views | 6 replies |

Login Form (security assist) Not Working

I created a registration form; forgot password form; userupdate form; and logout form ... all of which work perfectly.

The login form is not working ... I've double-checked the database fields, the username and password and can't seem to find the problem, please help! I'm using the latest Data Bridge extension; Dreamweaver CS5.5; and Windows 7.

A link to the page in development:
login.php

Thanks! I'm on a deadline and this has me stumped.

the problem is on the Members-Home.php page.


you have a mix of Security assist And Dreamweaver User Authentication.

The Dreamweaver User Authentication. is causing the login to fail.


delete the code from line 7 - 79:

php:
<?php

//initialize the session
if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
  
session_start();
}

// ** Logout the current user. **
$logoutAction $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."?doLogout=true";
if ((isset(
$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) && ($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] != "")){
  
$logoutAction .="&"htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}

if ((isset(
$_GET['doLogout'])) &&($_GET['doLogout']=="true")){
  
//to fully log out a visitor we need to clear the session varialbles
  
$_SESSION['MM_Username'] = NULL;
  
$_SESSION['MM_UserGroup'] = NULL;
  
$_SESSION['PrevUrl'] = NULL;
  unset(
$_SESSION['MM_Username']);
  unset(
$_SESSION['MM_UserGroup']);
  unset(
$_SESSION['PrevUrl']);
    
  
$logoutGoTo "../index.php";
  if (
$logoutGoTo) {
    
header("Location: $logoutGoTo");
    exit;
  }
}
?>
<?php
if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
  
session_start();
}
$MM_authorizedUsers "";
$MM_donotCheckaccess "true";

// *** Restrict Access To Page: Grant or deny access to this page
function isAuthorized($strUsers$strGroups$UserName$UserGroup) { 
  
// For security, start by assuming the visitor is NOT authorized. 
  
$isValid False

  
// When a visitor has logged into this site, the Session variable MM_Username set equal to their username. 
  // Therefore, we know that a user is NOT logged in if that Session variable is blank. 
  
if (!empty($UserName)) { 
    
// Besides being logged in, you may restrict access to only certain users based on an ID established when they login. 
    // Parse the strings into arrays. 
    
$arrUsers Explode(","$strUsers); 
    
$arrGroups Explode(","$strGroups); 
    if (
in_array($UserName$arrUsers)) { 
      
$isValid true
    } 
    
// Or, you may restrict access to only certain users based on their username. 
    
if (in_array($UserGroup$arrGroups)) { 
      
$isValid true
    } 
    if ((
$strUsers == "") && true) { 
      
$isValid true
    } 
  } 
  return 
$isValid
}

$MM_restrictGoTo "../login.php";
if (!((isset(
$_SESSION['MM_Username'])) && (isAuthorized("",$MM_authorizedUsers$_SESSION['MM_Username'], $_SESSION['MM_UserGroup'])))) {   
  
$MM_qsChar "?";
  
$MM_referrer $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
  if (
strpos($MM_restrictGoTo"?")) $MM_qsChar "&";
  if (isset(
$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']) && strlen($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']) > 0
  
$MM_referrer .= "?" $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
  
$MM_restrictGoTo $MM_restrictGoTo$MM_qsChar "accesscheck=" urlencode($MM_referrer);
  
header("Location: "$MM_restrictGoTo); 
  exit;
}
?>




and change the logout link to point to the Security assist logout page:
<a href="../logout.php">Logout</a>

Hi Jason,
While I was waiting for a reply. I started all over again using the assumption that the Members-Home.php page was the problem and that I had dualing authentications.

I have redone all of the pages and am just now testing ... I was just about to post a message that I THINK it might be solved... I'll post again when things are working so we can close the thread. Thanks again so much for your help today.
