Introduction

In this article we will learn how to change a password of a registered user. The registered user must login with his/her login credentials (user name and password). After successful login a Change Password link will be visible. Here by clicking the link a new page will appear where the user must enter the new password and confirm the password and then click on the update button to change his/her password respectively.

INSERT INTO `user` (`id`, `name`, `address`, `area`, `city`, `pin`, `state`, `country`, `mobile`, `email`, `user`, `password`) VALUES
(1, 'Raj', 'New Ag colony plot no 4 block 3', 'Nayapalli', 'Bhubaneswar', 751013, 'Orissa', 'India', '9987654321', 'raj@yahoo.com', 'Raj Kumar', 'raj123'),

Now let's move to the coding part.

For creating a database connection:

config.php

<?php

$sDbHost = 'localhost';
$sDbName = 'Work';
$sDbUser = 'root';
$sDbPwd = '';

$dbConn = mysql_connect ($sDbHost, $sDbUser, $sDbPwd) or die ('MySQL connect failed. ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($sDbName,$dbConn) or die('Cannot select database. ' . mysql_error());

?>

Login.php

<?php
session_start();
include("config.php");
if($_REQUEST["btn_login"]=="Login")
{
$uname=$_POST["txt_login"];
$password=$_POST["txt_pwd"];
$sql="select * from user where user='".$uname."' and password='".$password."'";
//echo $sql;
//exit;
$res=mysql_query($sql);
if($rs=mysql_num_rows($res)>0)
{
$_SESSION["uname"]=$uname;
//echo $_SESSION["uname"];

echo "<script>location.href='welcome.php'</script>";
}
else
{
echo "<script>location.href='Login.php?qs=invalid'</script>";
}
}
?>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

document.frm_login.txt_login.focus();
return false;
}
if(document.frm_login.txt_pwd.value=="")
{
alert("Please Enter password");
document.frm_login.txt_pwd.focus();
return false;
}
return true;
}
</script>
