I would like to have my code where nothing happens until the user tries to login.  RIght now, the code runs as the page loads, therefore outputting the error message.  I don't want the error message to be displayed until a user tries to login.

<?php
session_start();
//Pulling info from login page
if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']  == "POST") {
     
      $strUsername = $_POST['strUsername'];
      $strPassword = $_POST['strPassword'];
     
}
 
//Connect to the database
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "username", "password")
or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("bank");
 
//Select info from the database
$sql_select = mysql_query("select * from login where strUsername = '" . $strUsername . "' and strPassword = '" . md5($strPassword) . "'")
or die(mysql_error());
 
if(mysql_num_rows($sql_select) != 0)
{
        $_SESSION["username"] = $strUsername;
        header("location: index.php");
}
else
{
        $result = "You are not authorized, please register with us.";
}
 
 
session_write_close();
?>
