Im quite a newbie in making php, but I managed to run the test you
suggested,
but nothin happened. This time it was propably the code I did:
first I added the "or die("Invalid query: $sql");" part and ran the form,
but everything happened just like when refreshing a page.

Then I did this:
  $result = mysql_query($sql)
or die("Invalid query: $sql");

  echo $sql;

but the database was silent....it just refreshed the page and cleared out
the form.

1. Here is a different method of error checking for queries;

if the query is

$query = "SELECT foo FROM BAR ";
if(!($result = mysql_query($query, $database_connection))){
   print("MySQL reports the following error: " . mysql_error() . "\n");
   exit();
}

2. Check your web access and error logs for clues.
3. Does the user have permission to INSERT and/or UPDATE? If you set those
on the database did you flush the grant tables?

HTH!
