Google Developer Console

First, you need Client ID & Client Secret code to make the OAuth connection so here I have teach you how to get that just follow the steps here.

Database Configuration

Now move on the PHP code to integrate the Googel OAuth API. So first create one database the database name is googlelogin then just import the users.sql file in your database. Now the database side will be finished.

Integrate PHP code in Google+

So now open the gpConfig.php file and edit the following things like Client ID, Client Secret & redirect url. The code is


	//Include Google client library 
	include_once 'src/Google_Client.php';
	include_once 'src/contrib/Google_Oauth2Service.php';

	$clientId = ''; //Google client ID
	$clientSecret = 'PeQNr3CBhdZvaUXA0kQe5_ge'; //Google client secret
	$redirectURL = ''; //Callback URL

	//Call Google API
	$gClient = new Google_Client();
	$gClient->setApplicationName('Login to');

	$google_oauthV2 = new Google_Oauth2Service($gClient);

When you have change the Client ID & secret it will affect your code, so don’t change & delete. Suppose if you have delete just create another project and make the client ID’s to fetch the same credentials.

Homepage for Google+ OAuth

This is your own design, you have write any code to UI design to make the attractive look for your user. So just make the new things like attractive login page example. The sample code is,

    //Include GP config file && User class
    include_once 'gpConfig.php';
    include_once 'User.php';

    	$_SESSION['token'] = $gClient->getAccessToken();
    	header('Location: ' . filter_var($redirectURL, FILTER_SANITIZE_URL));

    if (isset($_SESSION['token'])) {

    if ($gClient->getAccessToken()) {
    	//Get user profile data from google
    	$gpUserProfile = $google_oauthV2->userinfo->get();
    	//Initialize User class
    	$user = new User();
    	//Insert or update user data to the database
        $gpUserData = array(
            'oauth_provider'=> 'google',
            'oauth_uid'     => $gpUserProfile['id'],
            'first_name'    => $gpUserProfile['given_name'],
            'last_name'     => $gpUserProfile['family_name'],
            'email'         => $gpUserProfile['email'],
            'gender'        => $gpUserProfile['gender'],
            'locale'        => $gpUserProfile['locale'],
            'picture'       => $gpUserProfile['picture'],
            'link'          => $gpUserProfile['link']
        $userData = $user->checkUser($gpUserData);
    	//Storing user data into session
    	$_SESSION['userData'] = $userData;
    	//Render facebook profile data
            $output = '<h1>Google+ Profile Details </h1>';
            $output .= '<img src="'.$userData['picture'].'" width="300" height="220">';
            $output .= '<br/>Google ID : ' . $userData['oauth_uid'];
            $output .= '<br/>Name : ' . $userData['first_name'].' '.$userData['last_name'];
            $output .= '<br/>Email : ' . $userData['email'];
            $output .= '<br/>Gender : ' . $userData['gender'];

            $output .= '<br/><a href="'.$userData['link'].'" target="_blank">Click to Visit Google+ Page</a>';
            $output .= '<br/>Logout from <a href="logout.php">Google</a>'; 
            $output = '<h3 style="color:red">Some problem occurred, please try again.</h3>';
    } else {
    	$authUrl = $gClient->createAuthUrl();
    	$output = '<a href="'.filter_var($authUrl, FILTER_SANITIZE_URL).'"><img src="images/glogin.png" alt=""/></a>';
