Do you mind telling me where this php.ini is? 

And I tried the second attempt like this:

$query = "INSERT INTO friends (id, firstname, surname) values 
(nextval('friends_id_seq'), $_POST['firstname'], $_POST['surname'])";

which returns error:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or 
T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /local/scratch-1/ww220/Apache1.3/htdocs/test/add2.php on 
line 5
