most likely you're getting the error since you don't have quotes around $username in your query:

[!--sql--][div class=\'sqltop\']SQL[/div][div class=\'sqlmain\'][!--sql1--][span style=\'color:blue;font-weight:bold\']SELECT[/span] * FROM Profiles WHERE Email = '$username';

[!--sql2--][/div][!--sql3--]

nope, doesnt work either.

 

Somehow Im guessing that there is something wrong with the "Email" Im using as an index? In the database admin I have set Email-field as a Primary field, but it is not an index field. Could this be causing the problem?

don't know... just run an "or die(mysql_error())" right after your query:

[!--PHP-Head--][div class=\'phptop\']PHP[/div][div class=\'phpmain\'][!--PHP-EHead--]

[span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]<?php

$result[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]=[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]mysql_query[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]([/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"SELECT * FROM Profiles WHERE `Email` = \'$username\'\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]) or die([/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]mysql_error[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]());

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]?>

[/span]

[/span][!--PHP-Foot--][/div][!--PHP-EFoot--]

 

this will kill the script and give you the error if it's the query that's causing the problem.

ok, it reports

Unknown column 'abcd' in 'where clause'

 

abcd is the username Im using.

 

But I dont get this...I have only one profile in this database because Im testing, I have made sure many times that there really is the correct username, in the correct field. ???

that's because of the quotes. you've got to have strings offset by quotes in a where clause. look carefully at my last post. i offset the column name with tics, and i offset the $username with single quotes. that will get rid of the "unknown column" error
