atm I am not into PHP at all but I am in the process to learn.. !!
btw you can test case sensitivity using regular expression or if not typical one then using some string functions.. !

You can use ereg to test username and it is really powerful,
here is more info:

About header function giving error.. are you using "exit" after calling header function ?

if you are using header() then right after using header use exit..

example:
Code: [Select]
header(<something something>);
exit;
