Conditionals Help! - PHP Development

Ok, I'm having some trouble with conditionals, for some reason PHP is ing them up. First off, here is the code: <?php $username = "fred"; $userdata = "./$username.txt"; $fp = fopen("$userdata", "r", 1); $origpass = fread($fp, 5); if($passcount = 1) { if($pass = $origpass) { echo "Welcome to the Members' Only Part of the Site!"; } else { echo "Sorry, wrong password, please try again:"; echo "<form method='post' action='authenticationtest.php'>"; echo "<input name='pass' type='text'>"; echo "<input name='passcount' type='hidden' value='1'>"; echo "<input type='submit'>"; echo "</form>"; } } else { echo "Please input your password below:"; echo "<form method='post' action='authenticationtest.php'>"; echo "<input name='pass' ...

    Default Conditionals Help!

    Ok, I'm having some trouble with conditionals, for some reason PHP is ing them up.
    First off, here is the code:

    <?php
    $username = "fred";
    $userdata = "./$username.txt";
    $fp = fopen("$userdata", "r", 1);
    $origpass = fread($fp, 5);
    if($passcount = 1)
    {
    if($pass = $origpass)
    {
    echo "Welcome to the Members' Only Part of the Site!";
    }
    else
    {
    echo "Sorry, wrong password, please try again:";
    echo "<form method='post' action='authenticationtest.php'>";
    echo "<input name='pass' type='text'>";
    echo "<input name='passcount' type='hidden' value='1'>";
    echo "<input type='submit'>";
    echo "</form>";
    }
    }
    else
    {
    echo "Please input your password below:";
    echo "<form method='post' action='authenticationtest.php'>";
    echo "<input name='pass' type='text'>";
    echo "<input name='passcount' type='hidden' value='1'>";
    echo "<input type='submit'>";
    echo "</form>";
    }
    fclose($fp);
    ?>

    Its a relatively simple authentication script. It reads a password from a text file and compares it to the
    value sent previously. The problem seems to be one of two things:

    The first, is that PHP takes the wrong else statement, it goes from the first if (about $passcount) and then
    goes directly to the else statement with the sorry form. It never goes down to the correct else!

    Secondly, it seems that for some reason after a successful login, it will forevermore only display welcome.
    I don't have any cookies set, nor sessions, so then how do I get it to logout? Need some help with that.

    Thanks for any help in this!
