The e-commerce.

Bypass Login Security


Recommended Posts

I've got one site working OK, but I'm trying to use a subset of osCommerce on another site. My project uses a login to take a registered customer to an area that I don't want seen by the general public.


I've got it working fine, with one major exception. I can bypass the login screen and merely enter the index.php address. This does give me the welcome "Guest" message, but then I can still go anywhere on the "restricted" area.


While it's not an ideal solution, I've tried adding the following code that I found in another forum area

 if the customer is not logged on, redirect them to the login page

if (!tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) {


 tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'));


in the index.php file. However, it gives me an error that the tep_session_is_registered is unrecognized.


What is the tep_session? How can I fix the error condition and/or properly redirect an unregistered person away from the index page?
