To create a login page using CodeIgniter, follow these steps:

Step 1: Install CodeIgniter Download CodeIgniter from the official website ( and set it up on your server.

Step 2: Set up the database Create a database in your MySQL server and configure the database connection in the database.php file located in the application/config directory.

Step 3: Create a controller Create a new controller in the application/controllers directory. For example, you can create a controller called Login by creating a file named Login.php. In the controller, create functions to load the login form and process the login when the form is submitted.

Step 4: Create a view Create a view file in the application/views directory to display the login form. You can use HTML and PHP to create the form.

Step 5: Create a model Create a model in the application/models directory to handle database operations related to the login process. For example, you can create a model called User_model to handle user authentication.

Step 6: Implement the login logic In the controller, load the necessary libraries, models, and views to implement the login logic. Use methods provided by the model to check the user's credentials and log them in.

Step 7: Create routes Set up routes in the routes.php file located in the application/config directory to map URLs to the controller and its functions.

Step 8: Test the login page Access your login page in a web browser to test if it is working correctly. Make sure you can log in successfully using valid credentials.

That's it! You have successfully created a login page using CodeIgniter.
