Hey Folks, 
I am having trouble with some variables the $HTTP_AUTH_USER and $HTTP_AUTH_PW - now im useing PHP 4.3.3 and so i know that you have to use $_SERVER['HTTP_AUTH_USER'] and $_SERVER['HTTP_AUTH_PW'] instead of the old way now. Well i am having trouble with this script i have created to authenticate user name and password and verify against a postgresql database below. 

$auth = false; // Assume user is not authenticated 

if (isset( $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] ) && isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'])) { 

// Connect to MySQL 

pg_pconnect("host= port=5432 dbname=acquisuite_db user=pgadmin password=pgadmin") or die ( 'Unable to connect to server.' ); 

// Select database on MySQL server 

// mysql_select_db( 'your_db' ) 
// or die ( 'Unable to select database.' ); 

// Formulate the query 

$sql = ("SELECT * FROM tbl_authenticate WHERE username = '$PHP_AUTH_USER' AND password = '$PHP_AUTH_PW'"); 

// Execute the query and put results in $result 

$result = pg_exec( $sql ) 
or die ( 'Unable to execute query.' ); 

// Get number of rows in $result. 

$num = pg_num_rows( $result ); 

if ( $num != 0 ) { 

// A matching row was found - the user is authenticated. 

$auth = true; 



The Problem is on the $sql line when i put in the string to do the Query with the WHERE clause having the $HTTP_AUTH_USER and $HTTP_AUTH_PW. When i change it to '$_SERVER['HTTP_AUTH_USER']' and '$_SERVER['HTTP_AUTH_PW']' it does not work and i get a parse error. 
How can i get around this? 
does anyone have any ideas for me.
