Validate Login and Loggin In


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Hope someone can help me. I am trying to integrate as part of a script automated login into my system, I have got a far as getting ValidateLogin to return a uid and hash from the API, however I really am not sure what I am ment to do with this information, I have put it into 2 session variables as described in the wiki.


Any help really appreciated.

Its fairly simple. First off, the script you using needs to be on the same domain as the WHMCS installation. Otherwise, the session variables will not work. Once you have the uid and encrypted password hash, do the following in your PHP code.


if (!session_id()) session_start();

$_SESSION['uid'] = $uid;
$_SESSION['upw'] = md5($uid.$passwordhash.$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
// You're now logged in, redirect to your client area



One note, if you're using the ValidateLogin API call. I am not sure what the "passwordhash" is that is returned by that. If its simply a dump from the tblclients database table, the above should work fine. However, this may not be the case, and if this doesnt work you might need to check with support on what actually gets returned by ValidateLogin.
