PHP PHP User Authentication Adding Authentication to Your Application Reset Password

Can anyone help me work out what's going on?

I'm back with the authentication website again.

I managed to get some of the Flash messages working on localhost. When I left it last night, everything was working except the actual changing of the password.

I was all set to try and fix that when I opened the local server again and suddenly the login wasn't working at all... simply redirected back to the login screen with no flash messages.

I have no idea why this is as when I tested it before committing the change I was at least able to log in. Even if I revert to the last commit the redirect behaviour remains.

Then when I tried to test on my server the site didn't show up at all and only loads as far as the bootswatch file.
