if ($check == "admin" && $pass == $password && $user == $username) {
showsetup();
} elseif (($check == "admin") && ($pass != $password || $user != $username)) {
adminerror();

 $fp = fopen("$path_data/setup.php", "wb") or die ("The File
\"$path_data/setup.php\" does not exist");
 flock( $fp, 2);
 fputs ($fp, "<?php\n\$show = \"$show\";\n\$refshow =
\"$refshow\";\n\$ldec = \"$ldec\";\n\$lcolor = \"$lcolor\";\n\$hcolor
= \"$hcolor\";\n\$font_family = \"$font_family\";\n\$font_size =
