Login Script / Check Wordpress credentials via PHP function using INet.

Recommended Posts


So, I've been trying to make a simple login for my autoit script.  Basically I just want the login script to check the username/pass via a php function on my wordpress site.  I've included my current login script and php script that I have uploaded to my wordpress site.

Here is the login script I have:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Inet.au3>

AutoItSetOption("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$hLoginGUI = GUICreate(" :: Login", 232, 110, -1, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW))
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username:", 16, 12, 64, 17)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$hInputUsername = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 96, 8, 121, 21)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 20)
GUICtrlSetTip(-1, "Please enter your username")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Password:", 16, 44, 62, 17)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$hInputPassword = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 96, 40, 121, 21, BitOR($ES_PASSWORD, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 20)
GUICtrlSetTip(-1, "Please enter your password")
$hButtonLogin = GUICtrlCreateButton("Login", 144, 72, 75, 25)
GUICtrlSetCursor(-1, 0)
$hLabelCreateAccount = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Create account", 16, 80, 77, 17)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x0000FF)
GUICtrlSetCursor(-1, 0)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitScript")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($hButtonLogin, "_Login")
;GUICtrlSetOnEvent($hLabelCreateAccount, "_CreateAccount")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hLoginGUI)

While 1

Func _Login()
    $value = _INetGetSource("http://zzz.com/zzz.php?username=" & GuiCtrlRead($hInputUsername) & "&password=" & GuiCtrlRead($hInputPassword))
    If $value = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Woot", $value)
    If $value = 1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Fail", $value)
        MsgBox(0, "actual value" , $value)

Func ExitScript()

PHP Script

include '/wp-includes/user.php';

$auth = /wpincludes/user.php/wp_authenticate_username_password(NULL, $username, $password);

if (is_wp_error($auth)) {
$return = false;
return $return;

} else {
$return = true;
return $return;


So in theory, I thought this would work.  The php script alone should do all the authentication on the wordpress side of things.  I am trying to use INetGetSource to call that php function and get a return whether the username/password put in the login box was true or false.

If there is a different and simple way to do this, I'd love to know it.  I don't need this to be super secure, I just want it to work.

Any ideas?
