a little help with PHP code for logins
#11
And... even if it would accept the variables as a login string, they would have to be encrypted and sent in UTF-8 coding.

Not pulling your leg, Red.. maybe I missed something... just wondering why would he use PHP when that can't be done without server access, and I'm assuming that his home security company's webserver isn't going to give him access to their server. That's why I thought the browser storing username/password was the only way to go, not PHP.

PS- I'm not as good with PHP as you may think. I know enough to be dangerous, and to do some limited tweaking and that's about it. Grin

Every mainline browser I know of will keep your logins and passwords and insert them automatically so why reinvent the wheel? All you normally have to do is hit the mouse once.

Many sites, including this one, will remember you with a cookie and bypass even that much effort.

If that isn't enough then a password keeper like "LastPass" will be able to log on for you in most cases. They have the advantage that you can set a single secure password and then the password keeper will save all your passwords for you and even change your passwords to something much more secure.

If you want to use PHP you have to have a web server like Apache running on your local machine, but it would be easier to just create a page with some javascript on it since no local server is required, all the work is done by the browser.

The above is my opinion.  It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.

Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.
Your brain is not the boss.

He's no fun he fell right over.
