I am working with apache on Linux and have the latest version of Mysql
and am building an html interface for accessing a Mysql database. I
have the admin enter a username password in the form and everything
works great and if the enter the wrong username or password the browser
dispays an error no data - which is ok, but IE displays a white page
with no error - now my question.
What is the best way to display an error that you can't connect if the
username and password are not
field in the form.
Can or should I actually make a call to the permissions table-mysql
mysql? I don't think that would be wise or maybe I can create a
username and password that can grab the info needed from the mysql mysql
database to validate the admin user?
basically I am using the following to open the database:
my $usrn = $query->param("ADMINUSER");
$usrn = lc($usrn);
my $pass2 = $query->param("ADMINPASS");
$pass2 = lc($pass2);
my $dbh = Mysql->connect("Localhost","timeclock",$usrn,$pass2);
blah blah blah
my $sth = $dbh->query($command);
die "error with command \"$command\""
unless (defined $sth);
All I am looking for is a way to post a message back to the admin
stating that the database could not be opened because the $usrn and
$pass2 did not work and then I guess I'd like to use a meta line to jump
the admin back to the form page.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
