    simple parse error but i cant debug it

    I keep getting a parse error on the following line:

    PHP Code:
    while($row mysql_fetch_array['result']) 
    I downloaded the script (i cant remember where from now) but I have been trying to alter to to get it to work, but I'm not the usuage of
    PHP Code:
    mysql_fetch_array['result'
    like that before

    PHP Code:

    <?

    include"settings.php"; 


    if (isset($submit)) // name of submit button
    { $query = "select * from logintable where username='$username' and password='$password'"; 
    echo "\n\nQuery:".$query;

    $result = mysql_query($query); 
    echo "\n\nResult:".$result;
    $isAuth = false; //set to false originally

    while($row = mysql_fetch_array['result'])
    {
    echo $row['username'];
    echo $row['password'];
    if($row['username'] == $username) 
    //above row checks to see if username/password combination exists 

    $isAuth = true; 
    session_start();
    session_register('username');


    if($isAuth)
    {
    print "logged in successfully<br>";
    print "<A href='index.php'>Go to Admin Panel</a>";
    }
    else
    //if login/pass does not exist 
    {
    print "Wrong username or password";
    }
    }
    ?>
    Or if anyone can direct me to simple easy to use login script for admin system it would be greatly appreciated,

    thanks Neil

    mysql_fetch_array is a function.

    So...

    PHP Code:
    mysql_fetch_array['result'];

    is wrong.  It implies that mysql_fetch_array is an array not a function. 
    ... it must be

    PHP Code:
    mysql_fetch_array($result);

    function uses round bracketsnot square ones

    thats what i thought about the function,

    but i got confused as to whether it was right or not because when i change it to
    PHP Code:
    while($row mysql_fetch_array($result)) 
    i get the following error messages

    form submitted Query:select * from logintable where username='username' and password='password' Warning: Access denied for user: 'urbanaca@localhost' (Using password: NO) in /home/urbanaca/public_html/test/authenticate.php on line 21 Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: 'urbanaca@localhost' (Using password: NO) in /home/urbanaca/public_html/test/authenticate.php on line 21 Warning: MySQL: A link to the server could not be established in /home/urbanaca/public_html/test/authenticate.php on line 21 Result: Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/urbanaca/public_html/test/authenticate.php on line 25 Wrong username or password

    Check the connection string in your settings.php, ie username and password to connect to the database.

    the code is now like this

    The connection info is all correct, when i test the sql in php admin it is fine,

    but i think it gives false for while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
    doesn't go into the while loop and goes straight into print "Wrong username or password"; because $auth is false

    any idead anyone?

    Cheers Neil


    PHP Code:

    <?

    # PULL ADDITIONAL FILES
    include_once (".././settings.php");
    # CONNECT TO THE MySQL SERVER
    $link = mysql_connect($host,$user,$password);
    # SELECT THE DATABASE NEEDED
    mysql_select_db("$base");


    if (isset($submit)) // name of submit button

    echo "form submitted\n\n";
    $query = "select * from logintable where username='$username' and password='$password'"; 
    echo "\t\tQuery:".$query;
     // $db = mysql_pconnect($dbHost, $dbUser, $dbPass);
     // mysql_select_db($dbName, $db);
    $result = mysql_query($query);
    //echo "\t\tResult:".$result;
    $isAuth = false; //set to false originally

    while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
    {
    //echo $row['username'];
    //echo $row['password'];
    if($row['username'] == $username) 
    //above row checks to see if username/password combination exists 

    $isAuth = true; 
    session_start();
    session_register('username');


    if($isAuth)
    {
    print "logged in successfully<br>";
    print "<A href='index.php'>Go to Admin Panel</a>";
    }
    else
    //if login/pass does not exist 
    {
    print "Wrong username or password";
    }
    }
    ?>
