the 1st page:
<?php
        session_start();
    include_once("connect_db.php");
    $username = $_POST["txt_username"];
    $password = sha1($_POST["txt_password"]);
    $choice = $_POST["RadioGroup1"];

    switch($choice) {
    case 'parent':
    //set up the query
    $query = "SELECT * FROM parent WHERE username='$username' AND password='$password'";

    //run the query and get the number of affected rows
    $result = mysql_query($query) or die('error making query');
            // if could not execute sql query
        if ( !$result )
        {
            include_once ("loginerror.php");
            exit();
        }

        else
        {
            // if there is any record fetched, means that username & password verified
            $row = mysql_fetch_array( $result );

            // successfully signing in
            if ( $row )
            {
                $_SESSION['AUTH_USER'] = $username;
                $setnow = date( "Y-m-d H:i:s" );
                $updateQuery = "UPDATE parent SET last_sign_in = '$setnow' WHERE username = '$username' ";
                // update query
                mysql_query( $updateQuery );
                                header( 'Location: loginparent.php' );
        }

    else {
    header('Location: incorrectlogin.php');

    }

    break;
    }


    case 'service_provider' :
    $query = "SELECT * FROM service_provider WHERE username='$username' AND password='$password'";

    //run the query and get the number of affected rows
    $result = mysql_query($query) or die('error making query');
    $affected_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);

    //if there's exactly one result, the user is validated. Otherwise, he's invalid
    if($affected_rows == 1) {

        //add the user to our session variables
        $_SESSION[ 'AUTH_USER' ] = $username;
        header( 'Location: loginsp.php' );
    }
    else {
    header('Location: incorrectlogin.php');



    }
    break;
    mysql_free_result( $result );
    }
