Subject: [PHP] Submitting data to MySQL database using HTML/PHP form
I added "echo" statements after mysql_connect and mysql_select_db to check
where the code was broken. These statements show up on the login.php page
after submitting the form, which means the MySQL connection works. So, the
problem seems to lie with the *$insert *query... ideas?
