Login for new module

Recommended Posts

I run a math tutoring business and I'm developing "side module" where the tutors I hire can login and do various things.


I've basically copy/pasted the relevant code from login.php, to the Tutor Login page, but tep_validate_password is continuously returning an error when I correctly enter a password and login.


My section of code below contains the error checking lines of...


 echo $password . '------' . $check_tutor['password'];
 print_r ($check_tutor);



The relevant code then is...



// Redirect to a friendly cookie-must-be-enabled page if cookies are disabled (or the session has not started)
 if ($session_started == false) {
 require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_LOGIN);
 $error = false;
 if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['action']) && ($HTTP_GET_VARS['action'] == 'process')) {
$email_address = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['email_address']);
$password = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['password']);
// Check if email exists
$check_tutor_query = tep_db_query("select * from tutors where tutor_email = '" . tep_db_input($email_address) . "'");
if (!tep_db_num_rows($check_tutor_query)) {
  $error = true;
} else {
  $check_tutor = tep_db_fetch_array($check_tutor_query);
// Check that password is good
  if (!tep_validate_password($password, $check_tutor['password'])) {
	$error = true;
 echo $password . '------' . $check_tutor['password'];
 print_r ($check_tutor);
  } else {
	if (SESSION_RECREATE == 'True') {
	$tutors_id = $check_tutor['tutors_id'];

 //Redirect to the tutor_portal
	echo $tutors_id;
 echo $email_address;



The crazy thing is that the echo $password . '------' . $check_tutor['password']; line shows that the plain password matches the encrypted one.




Please help as this is driving me crazy!
