redirect login

I have some content on a page that requires a user to be logged in, however not the page.

How can I send the user to the login page from a page that doesnt require them to login?

How do I pass a url for redirect from a mysqli login page also using modrewrite urls.

I am trying to use:

When I put accesscheck in the url to the login page the login redirects to itself with the same query string

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

I see. this is using MySQLi authentication, not security assist.

On the login page, add the following code at line 1:

<?php
@session_start;
if(isset($_GET['accesscheck'])) {
$_SESSION['WA_FAIL_login'] = $_GET['accesscheck'];
}
?>




also, since you are using mod rewrite, you wont be able to use the PHP_SELF variable in the login link, set up the link using the page name and the id URL variable:

<a href="/request-detail-<?php echo(isset($_GET['id'])?$_GET['id']:"");?>">Login</a>

You are correct it is MySQLi.

I have made the changes and still having a problem with the redirect.

to get it to work, i changed the login link to:
<a href="login.php?accesscheck=/request-detail-<?php echo(isset($_GET['id'])?$_GET['id']:"");?>">log in</a>

on the login page i moved the code to set the session so it was just before the login behavior, for some reason it wasn't working at line 1.

WA_FAIL_login is the correct session name. the idea is this:

the WA_FAIL_login session is created when you access a restricted page. it is based on the name of the authentication object that you set
$Authenticate->Name = "login";

So by using the access check URL variable to set the WA_FAIL_login, it makes the system think you tried to access that page before losing in, so it will redirect there.
