    resolved [RESOLVED] Reading and validating user from SQL database table.

    Hello, I've been pulling my hair!!!! I've done this with a site that's online and works and pretty much copy/pasted that code into this application; and yes I've changed the variable/field names of the involved tables and files. However, it's not working... If you could please look and see if I'm missing something really stupid!

    Thank You,
    Barrie

    Edit: I've echo'ed $techno and it's being passed correctly and is in the 'user' table. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 / Apache 2.2.8 / PHP 5.2.4

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    session_start
    ();

    echo 
    "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd\">";
    echo 
    "<html>";

    echo 
    "<head>";
    echo 
    "<title>Password Check</title>";
    echo 
    "<meta http-equiv=\"content-type\" content=\"text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\" />";
    echo 
    "<meta name=\"generator\" content=\"Emacs\"/>";
    echo 
    "</head>";

    echo 
    "<body>";

    /*          We have a techno.

    */
    $techno $_POST['techno'];

    /*          Connect to the database and open the tables

    */

    $hostname="xxxxxxxxxx";
    $username="xxxxxxxxxx";
    $password="xxxxxxxxxx";
    $dbname="xxxxxxxxxx";

    mysql_connect($hostname$username$password) OR DIE ("Unable to connect to database! Please try again later.");

    mysql_select_db($dbname);

    /*          Get the user data

    */
    $sql "SELECT * FROM users WHERE techno = '$techno'";
    $result mysql_query($sql);

    while(
    $row mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
        
    $ndx $row[0];
        
    $name $row[1];
        
    $pword $row[2];
        
    $techno $row[3];
        }

    /*          Close the database connection

    */
    $sql mysql_close();    

    /*          Check if registered user; i.e. if $name is "" then no user found.

    */
        
    if ($name == "") {
          include 
    'badpass.php';
          exit();
          }

    /*           User is valid, save the techno
    */
    $_SESSION['techno'] = $techno;

    include 
    'index-go.html';

    echo 
    "</body>";
    echo 
    "</html>";
    exit();
    ?>
