Thank you Martin & Richard,

First Richard's question:

I am using the preconfigured binary install package
for Mac OS X 10.3.7 from Marc Liyanage at:

It has support for mysql compiled into it with
the mysql client library ver. 4.1.3beta as
reported by into.php. It does work in the "POST" direction
because information entered into html forms is written to
the proper database->tables->columns. I checked this with
a seperate mysql gui application named "MySQL4X Manager"
for the Mac OS X platform. The "POST" data arrived just fine.

As to Martin's comments and links, I did check out the php
documentation concerning migrating code from ver. 4 -> ver 5.
I thought I had enabled all backwards compatibility pnp.ini
directives. I again checked that the php.ini file was correctly
found by checking the info.php. The thing I'm guessing
(I am a php amateur) is that it has something to do with paths
a.k.a '_SERVER'in conjuction with argc and argv arguements.
I have not exhaustively tested possible changes

The code is a "tweaked" version of a Dreamweaver MX 2004 ("out-of-the-box")routine.

Again the code worked fine under php 4.3.9.

the "GET" request look like this:

<?php $colname_members_mbr = "1"; $colname_profile_pfl = "1"; $colname_lifetyle_stl = "1";

if (isset($_GET['username_mbr'])) {
$colname_members_mbr = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['username_mbr'] : addslashes($_GET['username_mbr']);
if (isset($_GET['username_pfl'])) {
$colname_profile_pfl = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['username_pfl'] : addslashes($_GET['username_pfl']);
if (isset($_GET['username_stl'])) {
$colname_lifestyle_stl = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['username_stl'] : addslashes($_GET['username_stl']);

mysql_select_db($database_roommatesat8, $roommatesat8);
$query_members_mbr = sprintf("SELECT * FROM members_mbr WHERE username_mbr = '{$_SESSION['MM_Username']}'", $colname_members_mbr);
$members_mbr = mysql_query($query_members_mbr, $roommatesat8) or die(mysql_error());
$row_members_mbr = mysql_fetch_assoc($members_mbr);
$totalRows_members_mbr = mysql_num_rows($members_mbr);

mysql_select_db($database_roommatesat8, $roommatesat8);
$query_profile_pfl = sprintf("SELECT * FROM profile_pfl WHERE username_pfl = '{$_SESSION['MM_Username']}'", $colname_profile_pfl);
$profile_pfl = mysql_query($query_profile_pfl, $roommatesat8) or die(mysql_error());
$row_profile_pfl = mysql_fetch_assoc($profile_pfl);
$totalRows_profile_pfl = mysql_num_rows($profile_pfl);

mysql_select_db($database_roommatesat8, $roommatesat8);
$query_lifestyle_stl = sprintf("SELECT * FROM lifestyle_stl WHERE username_stl = '{$_SESSION['MM_Username']}'", $colname_lifetyle_stl);
$lifestyle_stl = mysql_query($query_lifestyle_stl, $roommatesat8) or die(mysql_error());
$row_lifestyle_stl = mysql_fetch_assoc($lifestyle_stl);
$totalRows_lifestyle_stl = mysql_num_rows($lifestyle_stl);
$sessUsername = $_SESSION['MM_Username'];


If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
