How to code a button (login) to verify username + password and redirect it to an url


I have placed two textboxes on my html webpage - (1) username and (2) password textbox together with (3) a Login button.

on this site, I will provide users with a unique username and password prior to their login; there will be one username and password only. Hence, I need to:

(a) verify that the name and password is correct otherwise, alert users to correct it or contact the admin
(b) if the username and password was correct - redirect users to a URL page on my website e.g page2

could you please advise?

what application language are you planning to use? php?

because this isn’t really a database question

I can write this code in SQL or php - I need the code to run via the browser (client-side).
Thank you.

Hi faez,

Authentication is not an easy 1,2,3; however the IMHO the easiest way to do authentication using PHP is HTTP authentication. A quick search on Google provided this article

Hopefully this gets you on your way.
