Flash not sending variables to PHP

I have writtin a php script for a flash user login program however when I try to send the username and password vars to my php page, the script echo's "1" which means that the username and/or password are not in the database. I have put in the correct username and password but it will not work for some reason.
The other thing I need to figure out how to do, is have my php page send the number that has been echoed back to my flash document.
For example, if I was banned from the program, php would echo "2", then that number is read by flash and the appropriate action is taken.
Here is my actionscript:

loginBTN.onRelease = function() {
      status = "Loading...please wait..."
      myUser = new LoadVars()
      myUser.username = _root.username.text
      myUser.pwd = _root.pwd.text
      loadVariablesNum("http://www.website.com/scripts/login.php", myUser, "GET")
      myUser.onLoad = function() {
            if (myUser.status == 0) {
            if (myUser.status == 1) {
                                                status = "Incorrect uesrname or password"
            if (myUser.status == 2) {
                  status = "BANNED!"
            if (myUser.status == 3) {
                  status = "Double login."
            } else {
                  status = "Error"

Here is my php page:

      require_once "db_class.inc.php";
      require ('db.php');
      $connect = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dblogin, $dbpass) or die(mysql_error());
      $db_select = mysql_select_db($dbname) or die(mysql_error());
            $ipq = "SELECT ip FROM ip_ban";
            $ipr = mysql_query($ipq) or die(mysql_error());
                  while($iprow = mysql_fetch_assoc($ipr)) {
                        if($iprow["IP"] == $_ENV["REMOTE_ADDR"]) {
                            echo "&result=2&";
            $username = $HTTP_GET_VARS['username'];
            $pwd = $HTTP_GET_VARS['pwd'];
            $query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE username= \"$username\" AND password= \"$pwd\" ");
            if (mysql_num_rows($query) > 0) {
                  echo "&result=0&";
            }  else {
                  echo "&result=1&";

Any help would be great.

Hello, I think you could try

sendandload("http://www.website.com/scripts/login.php", myUser, "POST")

rather than

loadVariablesNum("http://www.website.com/scripts/login.php", myUser, "GET")

..this is where your passing to the php right. If not I don't see where you are.    Try not to use get with sensitive info or it will be visible.

I tried your suggestion and changed my php to use HTTP_POST_VARS but it still didn't work.

Ok, I managed to get my php script working but I had to use $HTTP_GET_VARS.
I tried returning the php result using trace, but it echo's 1 even if my username and password are correct.
Here is my code

loginBTN.onRelease = function() {
      this._parent.status = "1st stage complete"
      this._parent.myUser = new LoadVars()
      this._parent.myUser.username = _root.username.text
      this._parent.myUser.password = _root.password.text
      this._parent.myUser.onLoad = function() {
            if (this.result == "0") {
            else if (this.result == "1") {
           this._parent.status = "Incorrect uesrname or password"
            else if (this.result == "2") {
                  status = "some value"
            else if (this.result == "3") {
                  status = "ip ban"
      this._parent.myUser.sendAndLoad("http://www.dsfsadfsdfasd.com/scripts/login.php", this._parent.myUser, "GET")
