Hi all,

hope live is good for you all :lol:

i'm trying to understand the way php works with mysql.

i did setup a small database for a webpage where poeple can comment. There will be one user to acces that database to review the comment. let's say user = "user" with pass = "test".

When is the login checked by mysql if a person connects or do i need to right a code inside of php to check the username and password.????

The question is because it does not mather if i login with or with out a username and password. The script will run and give no error even if i use this code

Code: Select all

 mysql_connect ($host, $user, $pass) or die ("No connection is made");
could somebody help me understand where it's going wrong.
Because i think that if i would put a query behind it, it does not mather if poeple give a username and password to be able to see it.

thanks for you're time
have a nice day
One live time is not enough !!!!

If the user does not exist in the database it will NOT error out.
