I want to create a log in page on my website to allow only certain users who know the log in and password details to access some areas of the site.   I have copied a php code from elsewhere, but can't get it to work, is anyone able to help please?

This is a very simple example of a password protected page.

Copy & paste this code into a new PHP document. 

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Password Protected Content</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

<!--minimal demo styles-->
<style>
html {font-size:16px}

body {font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Sans", "DejaVu Sans", Verdana, "sans-serif";
font-size: 1.5rem;
width:80%;
margin:0 auto;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>


<?php
// Define your username and password here
$username = "admin";
$password = "pass123";

if (isset($_POST['txtUsername']) != $username || $_POST['txtPassword'] != $password) {
?>
<!--LOG-IN FORM-->
<form name="form" method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
<fieldset>
<legend>Log-In</legend>

<p><label for="txtUsername">Username:</label>
<br>
<input type="text" title="Enter your Username" name="txtUsername" id="txtUsername" required placeholder="5 characters"></p>

<p><label for="txtPassword">Password:</label>
<br>
<input type="password" title="Enter your password" name="txtPassword" id="txtPassword" required placeholder="7 characters"></p>

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-lg btn-primary">Submit</button>
</fieldset>
</form>

<?php
}
else {
?>

<!--PROTECTED CONTENT-->
<h2>Log-In Success!</h2>
<p>You have reached a password protected area of this page. What would you like to do next?</p>

<!--Links to other pages-->
<ul>
<li> <a href="download.html">Download Files</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Upload Files</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Watch Videos</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Play a Game</a></li>
</ul>
<?php
}
?> 
<!--END PROTECTED CONTENT-->

</body>
</html>

 

SaveAs test.php.

Test script on a PHP server.
