hi nick,
i tried the script with
"print "name = $name , password = $password, md5password = $md5password";
and surprisingly it gave the following output in the browser:
name = , password = , md5password = æ‘Ëp/]%d*¨p ïHø
NO entries for name n password!
I have no clue y this is happening.
My edited code is as follows:


use CGI;
use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser/;
use DBI;
use Digest::MD5 qw(md5 md5_hex md5_base64);

my $query = new CGI;
print $query->header();
#print $query->start_html(-title=>'LOGIN PAGE');


if(($query->request_method() eq "POST") && ($query->param("user") ne '') && ($query->param("password") ne ''))

$md5password = md5($chkpassword);

$dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:database=$db:host=$host", $user, $password) or die "Can't connect to database:$DBI::errstr\n";
$qry = $dbh->prepare("SELECT emp_name, password FROM new_user where emp_name=$chkuser");



print "name = $name , password = $password, md5password = $md5password";
#if (($chkuser eq $name) && ($md5password eq $password))
# print "<p> Thank You!<p>";
# $dbh->disconnect;
# print $query->end_html();
# print "<HEAD> Username or Password Incorrect!</HEAD>";
# print "<a href=''>Please Try Again</a>";

# $dbh->disconnect;
#print $query->end_html();
#print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

#print <<EOF;
print "<HTML>";
print "<BODY>";

print "<p>Username:</p>";
print "<input type='text' name='user'><br>";

print "<p>Password:</p>";
print "<input type='password' name='password'><br>";
print "<input type='submit' value='submit'><br>";
print "</FORM>";
print "</BODY>";
print "</HTML>";
#print $query->end_html();

and emp_name is not a unique key i suppose coz emp_id is the primary key (i dont need to use it).
Please suggest wt to do next
Waiting for ur reply
