Object not found!

Postby raspberryjam » 27. December 2011 14:32

Hope there are some php legends out there who can help me.

I am trying to add a members only section to a website, and having trouble with jumping from the login page to the welcome page. (on my local Windows 7 machine test site, running XMAPP 1.7.7)
I wish to use sessions for this. I have created a test user in the database, of which I am certain of the username and password, because I can see it in the table in Phpmyadmin. I have double checked the table names in the database as well, and the welcome php file is in the same directory as the php login page.

The login page comes up fine on my browser with no php errors listed and it has an include file with the html form in it attached to the php login file, However, every time I try to log in to see if I can be taken to the php welcome page, or even if I deliberately put in a wrong username and password which is not in the database it comes up with:

Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 404
localhost
12/27/11 12:32:11
Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.8 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.1

Here is the php code I am trying to use:
Code: Select all
<?php
session_start();
header('Cache-Control: public');
switch (@$_POST['Button']) // Existing member Login
{
   case "Log in":
   include("includes/database.inc");   //my database connection include file
   $cxn = mysqli_connect($host, $user, $password, $dbase)
         or die("Query died: connect");
   $sql = "SELECT loginName from member
         WHERE loginName='$_POST[fusername]'";
   $result = mysqli_query($cxn, $sql)
         or die("Query died: fusername");
   $num = mysqli_num_rows($result);
   if($num > 0)
   {
      $sql = "SELECT loginName FROM member
            WHERE loginName='$_POST[fusername]'
            AND password=md5('$_POST[fpassword]')";
      $result2 = mysqli_query($cxn, $sql)
            or die("Query died: fpassword");
      $num2 = mysqli_num_rows($result2);
      if($num2 > 0)
      {
         $_SESSION['auth']="yes";            
         $_SESSION['logname'] = $_POST['fusername'];
         $sql = "INSERT INTO login (loginName, loginTime)
               VALUES ('$_SESSION[logname]',NOW())";
         $result = mysqli_query($cxn, $sql)
               or die ("Query died: insert");
         header("Location: welcome.php");
      }
      else
      {
         $message_1 = "The Login Name, '$_POST[fusername]'
               exists, but you have not entered the
               correct password! Please try again.";
         $fusername=strip_tags(trim($_POST['fusername']));
         include("includes/form_member_login.inc");
      }
   }
   else
      {
      $message_1 = "The User Name you entered does not
               exist! Please try again.";
      include("includes/form_member_login.inc");
      }
   break;

   default:   
      include("includes/form_member_login.inc");
   }
?>

Even if I put the wrong information in the username and password fields in the form, it should still re-display the form page listing appropriate errors, but this is not happening either.

I have checked the apache error log file and I am getting these type of errors:

1st: One thread per user and topic. Please don't use already existing threads from other users.

Your error is in the sourcecode of your welcome.php page.
We don't know the sourcecode, so nobody can say anything about that.
Very common you don't use $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] the right way.

Be sure, that you use double quotes on that place. variables in single quotes will not be executed.

best wishes,

Thanks very much Altrea, I wasn't aware of the requirement for mandatory double quotes. Also cheers for the heads up on that one thread rule, I thought seeing as it was a similar topic it might be okay, but will create a new thread in future.
