Hi there.

There is a login form on the page index.php

				<form method="POST" action="login.php">
					<table border="0" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" class="w12">
						<tr>
							<td>Login:</td>
							<td>
								<input type="text" name="username" class="b12">
							</td>
						</tr>
						<tr>
							<td>Password:</td>
							<td>
								<input type="password" name="password" class="b12">
							</td>
						</tr>
						<tr>
							<td colspan="2" align="right">
								<input type="submit" value="Login">
							</td>
						</tr>
					</table>
				</form>

Open in new window


When the form on index.php is posted, it generates session id on the same page and then passes login data to login.php.

How do I programmatically post the login data via php, and then get the source code of the page called sourceineed.php ?

Thank you.

The above is inclusive of a few more parameters the you requested but may need..

You may need the point 'cookies.txt' to that file.

To get the source of the page you need you could wrap that page in a shell.


<?php
$file=file_get_contents("THE above page url");

DO SOME THING WITH $file..

Oh snaps. Apologies


Remove these lines.


$return = str_replace('<body ', '<!-- ', $return);
$return = str_replace('bgcolor="#FAf7EF"  >', ' -->', $return);
$return = str_replace('</TBODY>', '<!-- ', $return);

As they were hiding the <html>

If you post anything to login.php without session id, it just doesn't let you to login.

You know that even if you succeed, you will only get the HTML generated by the PHP page and not the PHP source.
