1) Liberal use of mysql_error() at strategic points in your code will help in
identifying where the problem lies.
2a) Printing the query (in your case $sql) that you're giving mysql allows you
to spot any obvious errors.
2b) If you don't spot any obvious errors then copy and paste the contents of
$sql into the mysql command-line and execute it there.

If that is the start of your code then the obvious mistake is that there is no
code to connect to mysql and initialise the connection etc.
