If you are going to differentiate some, you have use authentication — I can see some log-on code. If you have that, probably you have some persistent data layer where you user information is stored, some kind of database. Your code shows that you really use MySQL. And if you have that database, it's up to you what user data you put in user records and how you classify the users. So, what's the problem?

actually sir,i am creating a project for my college. i have created a data base and tables for both user and admin and accessing them by using different login pages,like for user login i used one page and for admin login i used another.the code i posted is just simply for login for user in his login page and admin in his login i want to access both of them from a common login page.both user and admin have same attributes for logging in. email and password. please help me.yes i used mysql for writing queries,using them i retrieved records of user
Right, you should not have separate login. You identify the user, and then you know what kind of the user is that, from your database. What's the problem?

yes sir,exactly.I want the code how to differentiate whether it is a user or admin.can u please help..
can we talk privately sir if possible please.
What do you mean by "want code". You are the one who is supposed to develop code, otherwise this is not the site for you. You can contact me via my Web site, but I cannot guarantee anything.

query("select * from userinfo WHERE email like '".$email."' AND password like '".$pass."';");

// Mysql_num_row is counting table row
$count = $result->num_row;

// Determine if user is "user" or "admin"
$usertype = $dbh->query("select type from userinfo where email like'".$email."';");
$row = $usertype->fetch_row();

// If result matched $myusername and $mypassword, table row must be 1 row
if ($count == 1) {

// Register $myusername, $mypassword and redirect to file
$_SESSION['email'] = '$email';
$_SESSION['password'] = '$pass';
$_SESSION['type'] = $row;

// Redirect to appropriate page depending on user rights. Indicator 0 for user, 1 for admin.
if ($_SESSION['type'] == 1) {
} else {
$dbh = null;
} else {
echo "";

Wrong Username or Password

Oh gosh, it looks like you store passwords. Never ever do it. You can store cryptographic hash and compare hash to hash. Never store passwords anywhere, never pass them through the network when you do authentication.

every time i open it, i am getting wrong username or password

You will have to assign different roles that come with different permissions for different users.
