PHP userid and password validation for user login

Here we will discuss about the checking of login id and password against the data in the signup table. This part of the code is given in the loginck.php file given inside the zip file which you can download at the end of this tutorial. You can go to part 1 of this script which displays the login form for the members to enter userid and password.

PHP login script to check userid & password from MySQL database and create session with logout link

Advance Signup Script
This is a basic script and it requires knowledge of PHP , MySQL.

You can check our advance Signup - Login script using PHP, MySQL, JQuery & Bootstrap.

You can try plus-signup-v2 and visit this page again.

Here we have used the same plus_signup table we used in our php signup script tutorial so you can use all the files to develop a signup and login application.

We will use one line of SQL query to get the reply. We will be using select query to get the data from the table

"SELECT * FROM plus_signup WHERE userid='$userid' AND password = '$password'"
plus_signup is the table name, userid and password are the field names. This SQL statement will return us one record if member userid and password is there in our table. So we can use one if condition to process the script if the usrid and password is correct and is there in the table.
We are using userid and password variables in our sql statement and using that to get data from our member table, it is not safe to directly use them inside query. We will use pdo to sanitize the data before using them. Let us first collect them
Now let us check the database with our query.

$count=$dbo->prepare("select password,mem_id,userid from plus_signup where userid=:userid");

Here is the code to do all this for us.
$count=$dbo->prepare("select password,mem_id,userid from plus_signup where userid=:userid");
$row = $count->fetch(PDO::FETCH_OBJ);
echo " Inside ";
// Start session n redirect to last page
//echo " Inside session  ". $_SESSION['userid'];
$msg=" welcome $_SESSION[userid] loging successfully , please wait ... ";
echo $msg;
echo "<script language='JavaScript' type='text/JavaScript'>

$msg = " Login failed, tray again ... <br><INPUT TYPE='button' VALUE='Back' onClick='history.go(-1);'>";
echo $msg;

In the above code if the validation is correct then we are creating session variables

The else condition if userid or password is not correct will display the message and ask the member to try again.
That's all for our member login script.
Using the session variable we can show other pages or redirect the members to different pages.

Role based login system

You may have different types of role for the member. We can add one more column to the table, column name is role. Against each record we can keep one role like admin, student, staff, teacher etc .
After there successful login , we can read the role data and accordingly create one session variable saying role of the member.
Different areas of the site we can keep and while checking the session status we can allow or reject the access to the user to the page by reading the session role value.

Read how the session is checked at the page level.

Here we will add one more level of check for the role session data and reject or accept the user to the page.
if(!(isset($_SESSION['userid']) and strlen($_SESSION['userid']) > 2)){
echo "Please <a href=g_login.php>login</a> to use this page ";
	if($_SESSION['role'] != 'admin'){
		echo "You are not authorized to use this page ";
echo "Welcome $_SESSION[userid] | <a href='logout.php'>Logout</a>|
<a href='change.php'>Change Password</a>";
