$_POST not passing variables

Recommended Posts


I know there are a lot of posts on the internet about this but I can't find one that solves my problem.

I'm following the PHP Login Page tutorial on w3schools.com and am having some trouble.



It is not passing the 'uname' and 'psw' to action_page.php. Not sure why... Everything looks referenced correctly


I have 2 scripts here:

1) index.html(This seems to be working as-far as sending the credentials to action_page.php, I see the URL at the top is to action_page.php and includes the input username and password)

<form action="/action_page.php">
  <div class="imgcontainer">
    <img src="kje_logo.png" alt="Avatar" class="avatar">

  <div class="container">
    <label for="uname"><b>Username</b></label>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Enter Username" name="uname" required>

    <label for="psw"><b>Password</b></label>
    <input type="password" placeholder="Enter Password" name="psw" required>

    <button type="submit">Login</button>

2*) action_page

$dbservername = "localhost";
$dbusername = "****";
$dbpassword = "****";
$dbname = "****";
$username = $_POST['uname'];
$password = $_POST['psw'];

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($dbservername, $dbusername, $dbpassword, $dbname);

// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
    die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
} else{
	echo 'Connected! ';
$sql = "SELECT * FROM KJE WHERE username = '$username' AND password = '$password' ";//when i change $username and $password to the correct credentials, it says "Login Success"
$result = mysqli_query($conn,$sql);
$check = mysqli_fetch_array($result);
echo 'Login Success.';
echo 'Login Failure!';
