comment Does it make sense to authenticate a user when he/she provides existing valid credentials while registering?
So basically you are questioning the behaviour that when an existing user tries to register a second time, it automatically but implicitly becomes a login operation. In that case I'd totally go with jazZRo's answer.

Can you please clarify if the question is about registering as a new user, or logging in as en existing user?

It's not clear whether your question is about registering as a new user, or logging in as an existing user.

That's bad practice. First I hope you are not storing the password itself (which is forbidden), but rather a hash which you will check for a match. Mind that multiple passwords may end up with the same hash. So hashes are not unique, so to WHICH account will you login if the hashes match?

+1 for the clarity and the mockup, but it's essentially the same answer as Awesh has given.
