can i put a .php include in a .html file, or do they both have to be .php... oh and i did get some success lol...

I used this to login
PHP Code:
$link mysql_connect('localhost''USER''PWD');
if (!
$link) {
    die(
'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());
}
echo 
'Connected successfully'
and it came up with - Connected successfully on my page. so thats good.(i changed UN and PWD obviously)

so i added your code.. i got this


PHP Code:
<?php

$link 
mysql_connect('localhost''USER''PWD');
if (!
$link) {
    die(
'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());
}
echo 
'Connected successfully';


$username mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['username']); 
$password md5($_POST['password']); 
$rs mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE `uname`='{$uname}' AND `pword`='{$password}'"); 
if(
mysql_num_rows($rs)){// one or more rows 
  
$userInfo mysql_fetch_assoc($rs); 
  
$_SESSION['user'] = $userInfo['userId'];// get the users ID 
  
echo "now logged in as {$userInfo['uname']}"
}else{
// no rows 
  
echo "Username or password incorrect."


mysql_close($link);

?>
and that dosn't work. I need some learner stickers /!\
