locally works/remotely breaks? (Oracle related?)

Group,

I'm diving into this crazy PHP thing, and I find myself a bit stuck.
Locally I can get a site to work very well. However, whenever I ask a
buddy of mine to test the site and I give him my IP it doesn't work.

I have a form. The form checks username/password against a database and
then either sends you back to the form or forwards you to the next
page. Is:

header("Locatio n: http://localhost/nextpage.php");

the proper form of redirection?

The issue on the not at my computer logins is in this redirect. I'm not
sure what I need to send, but I was getting connection errors in the
beginning which aren't showing up anymore. Then I was getting
unreferenced index errors, but I put all the variables in a session and
that seems to work now. And now I'm stumped because I'm not getting
errors in the log.

Thanks for any help in advance,

Melih Onvural

Well, Duh! localhost is the machine where the browser is running on.
Your friend connects to http://example.com/page.php and gets a redirect
to _his_ machine at http://localhost/nextpage.php.

The Q&D hack is to redirect to 'Location: nextpage.php', it violates the
HTTP rfc but in practice I have yet to see a browser that doesn't
redirect to the correct URL with this.

Better would be to redirect to "Location: http://{$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']}/nextpage.php"

As a follow up, I'm getting that:

$uid=$_POST['username'];
$pwd=$_POST['pwd'];

those lines are invalid indexes. I'm worried that the value isn't
carrying over. I have an index.html page which has a form that posts
and then a connection.php page that mines the data and makes a decision
to go forward or go back. Should I turn something on so that my POST
variables carry over?

Carry over to where?

Without seeing a (minimal) example of the HTML and PHP that you're
using, it's difficult to tell what's going on.

don't worry dude. it's just the error reporting config.

change the error_reporting value to E_ERROR | E_WARNING | E_PARSE in
php.ini and restart your webserver :)
