2019-12-04 Raj Thakur Download Code

Hello friends, today we are implementing a login form with Codeigniter and database. Once a person has been identified through the user ID or a similar value, he must be authenticated, which means he must prove he is who she says he is. something a person knows is nothing but password These factors are also commonly called authentication by ownership and authentication by characteristic. user identification is the most fundamental think of security. here we got authentication from already store database record. we check user email id and password without a refreshing web page.

Create database tables:

CREATE TABLE `user_details_table` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `user_name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `user_password` varchar(50) NOT NULL

Database Configuration (Application/config/database.php)

defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');
$active_group = 'default';
$query_builder = TRUE;

$db['default'] = array(
	'dsn'	=> '',
	'hostname' => 'localhost',
	'username' => 'root',
	'password' => '',
	'database' => 'user_detail',
	'dbdriver' => 'mysqli',
	'dbprefix' => '',
	'pconnect' => FALSE,
	'db_debug' => (ENVIRONMENT !== 'production'),
	'cache_on' => FALSE,
	'cachedir' => '',
	'char_set' => 'utf8',
	'dbcollat' => 'utf8_general_ci',
	'swap_pre' => '',
	'encrypt' => FALSE,
	'compress' => FALSE,
	'stricton' => FALSE,
	'failover' => array(),
	'save_queries' => TRUE

Controllers (Application/controllers/Login_control.php)

defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');

class Login_control extends CI_Controller {

	public function index()
	public function login_process()
		# code...
		$user_email =$this->input->post('user_email');
		$user_password = $this->input->post('password');
		$password = md5($user_password);
		if ($this->Data_model->find_user($user_email,$password)) {
			# code...
			echo "ok";
			echo "Wrong username and passwords";


		catch(PDOException $e){
			echo $e->getMessage();
