Insert into Script Help


Recommended Posts

I was wondering why this will not cooperate:



// connect to the mysql server
$link = mysql_connect($server, $db_user, $db_pass)
or die ("Could not connect to mysql because ".mysql_error());

// select the database
or die ("Could not select database because ".mysql_error());

// check if the username is taken
$check = "select id from $table where username = '".$_POST['username']."';"; 
$qry = mysql_query($check) or die ("Could not match data because ".mysql_error());
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($qry); 
if ($num_rows != 0) { 
echo "Sorry, there the username {$_POST['username']}  is already taken.<br>";
echo "<a href=register.html>Try again</a>";
if({$_POST['password']} != {$_POST['confirmnewpassword']}){ 
echo ("The two passwords must match."); 

else {

// insert the data
$insert = mysql_query("insert into $table values ('NULL', '".$_POST['username']."', '".$_POST['password']."', '".$_POST['email']."')")
or die("Could not insert data because ".mysql_error());

// print a success message
echo "Your user account has been created!<br>"; 
echo "Now you can <a href=user_login.php>log in</a>"; 



I know it has something to do with this section:

if({$_POST['password']} != {$_POST['confirmnewpassword']}){ 
echo ("The two passwords must match.");

The script just will not do anything. There's no error, it just loads to this page (registration.php) and goes white. I want that statement to confirm that the people are confirming their password.


This attaches to a registration form, so there are Username, Password, Confirm Password, and Email. I want that little section to confirm that password = confirmnewpassword (or in this case the IF statement).
