heres the entire script.. its to activate a user
[code]<?

/* Account activation script */

// Get database connection

include ( './db.php' );

// Create variables from URL.

// first check if it's already been activated

$sql = mysql_query ( "SELECT COUNT(*) AS total FROM users WHERE userid = '" . mysql_real_escape_string ( $_REQUEST['id'] ) . "' AND password = '" . mysql_real_escape_string ( $_REQUEST['code'] ) . "' AND activated = 1" ) or die ( 'Query Error: ' . mysql_error );

$found = mysql_fetch_assoc ( $sql );

if ( $found['total'] == 0 )
{
$sql = mysql_query ( "UPDATE users SET activated = 1 WHERE userid = '" . mysql_real_escape_string ( $_REQUEST['id'] ) . "' AND password = '" . mysql_real_escape_string ( $_REQUEST['code'] ) . "'" ) or die ( 'Query Error: ' . mysql_error );

if ( mysql_affected_rows ( $sql ) == 0 )
        {
        die(mysql_error());
        }
{
echo "<strong><font color='red'>Your account could not be activated, no user found by that id or password!</font></strong>";
}
else
{
echo "<strong>Your account has been activated!</strong> You may login below!<br />";

    include ( './login.php' );
}
}
else
{
echo "<strong>You have already activated your account!</strong> You may login below!<br />";

i'm getting this error lately too on one of my scripts, i'm pretty sure that it means you have more than 1 else { } statement in an if statement

The error is occuring because on line 25 you have an open curly bracket [color=green][b]{[/b][/color] but it's not preceeded by an [color=green][b]else[/b][/color].

The code that sasa's provided should clear it up.

Huggie
