Login pages not recognizing session variables

Login pages not recognizing session variables

Upon successful login, the system is supposed to recognize the user based on a session variable. My page is referencing a whole bunch of things, trying to get it to work, but they're all blank. I'm attaching a zipped file with my login pages.

Thank you.

It looks like you are storing the variable as: SecurityAssist_userID

but referring to it as: SecurityAssist_UserID

It is case-sensitive, so that might be the only issue.

Okay - weird. On my login.php page, it looks as if it's storing 2 different session variables. SecurityAssist_userID AND SecurityAssist_UserID. So, wouldn't that mean that both are being set? This is what's happening. In my login page, in the security assist authenticate user dialog, under the session values tab, I removed the SecurityAssist_UserID ... all references. I then created a new session variable simply called userID. It's still not displaying this information on the index page.

Please send a current copy of both pages and I'll take a look.

Please see PM.

It looks like the password requires at least 6 characters. Are you entering a valid password? If you could provide a URL and maybe FTP access I could fully debug and figure out what is going wrong.

I know there are more than 6 characters in the PW field. I will send URL and FTP in a PM to you.

I was able to log in with the username and password from the database.

I just re-uploaded index.php to the server. Do you need me to re-upload other pages as well? Thank you.

Your pages appear to be working now. It looks like your index page was using the wrong session variable name.
