Personally I'd find a new host, preferrably one that's not free and get yourself a .com.. Much less errors except for those in your own coding...
The problem with Geocities is that their servers are all co-located.. which basically means a shit ton of people are on their servers instead of having just one.. now yes this is true with Regular Hosts too.. but here is the difference..
Geocities has say 2 servers and each server is on the same ISDN connection (Geocities really isnt on a great connection like a real host should be).. So say each server has 12,000 sites on it because by nature a geocities page generally isnt going to have more than like 4-6 pages on it.. people just dont spend the time to do a nice site when hosting on geocities cause its geocities...
So 12,000 people are trying to view their site at the exact same time on a puny ISDN connection.. At least 2000 of those people are going to get a cannot load page error.. and 3000 at least are going to have errors with their scripting if any special scripting was used because of the way Geocities servers are put together..
Though you may be just learning php and mysql it is in my direct kindness I offer you my next statements. Geocities is a host for those who are toying around with HTML. It is definately not a host that a seasons web developer should be using, nor someone who would like to learn or just learn more about a dynamic language such as PHP. In your quest for knowledge. if you remember only one thing I ever say to you make sure it is this next statement. Geocities is the devil. To get a truely flawless execution of your pages you would be better of paying for a domain or at the very least finding someone who has a domain and a lot of space to allocate say 10MB to you. Peace Love and Haribo Frogs to everybody... Take care of yourself and each other.

p.s.- this thread has turned into misc. forum material, so it's being moved.
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community
