Whats wrong? This is the problem...
[tt]Warning: mysql_affected_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/content/j/w/k/jwk811/html/membership/activate.php on line 25[/tt]
Heres the entire script...
[code]<?php

/* 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(strlen(mysql_error()) > 0)
{
die(mysql_error());
}
if ( mysql_affected_rows ( $sql ) == 0 )

{
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' );
}
}
?>[/code]
Heres line 25...
[code]if ( mysql_affected_rows ( $sql ) == 0 )[/code]
If you can find what the problem is that would be great.

Try this:

[code]

<?php

/* 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 );

$num = mysql_num_rows($sql);

if(strlen(mysql_error()) > 0)
{
die(mysql_error());
}
if ( $num == 0 )

{
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' );
}
}
?>
[/code]
