hi

Please assist how can we redirect to another page when the user has successfully login?

      $result = mysql_query($myQuery);
      $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
      $myID=$row["AccessID"];
      mysql_close();
      //test
      if ($myID==12345)
      {
            session_start();
            $_SESSION['AccessID']=$myID;
                                <-------------------------------------------------------------redirect to ../../main/index.php
                else { echo "Login failed."; }

Thanks.

header("Location: "../../main/index.php");

you have however to take care that there is NO output generated (print/echo/html) before the header function is run,.

If the file is moved permanently you can use like this.

<?php
header('HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently');
header('Location: http://www.example.com/redirecto.html');
header('Connection: close');
exit;
?>

I usually put in Meta tags - to put headers in it can get messy and complicated, and may interfere with other header things.

echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"Refresh\" CONTENT=\"0; URL=index.php\">";

setting up a meta tag might not pass on any variables between the pages. it is only a count and i have personally experienced difficulty in handling session cookies (irrespective of placing a meta tag after session_start(), placing values in cookies, etc) and have a meta tag with counter zero has no effect and sends the user back to the login page to relogin => creating a indeterminate loop.
