Help with Session


Recommended Posts

I do not know if this belongs here. I am trying something different and need to see what I am doing wrong with this code:

include "dbconnect.php";


$userstats="SELECT * from userdb where username='$user'";

$userstats2=mysql_query($userstats) or die("Could not get user stats");


$username = $userstats['username'];

echo "$username, welcome to my game.";


Would this work? Please be kind, I am new to this.

Re: Help with Session

Thanks for your interest, Floydian. It turns out I was way over complicating things. Here is what I ended up doing that worked:


include "dbconnect.php";

$user = $_SESSION['user'];

$other = mysql_query("SELECT * from userdb where username='$user'") or die("Could not get other!");

$try = mysql_fetch_array( $other );

$name = $try['username'];

echo "Welcome $name, to my game";
