Parse error


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to query sql to post all new users on my site to the index page. This string:


$sql = "SELECT COUNT(id) FROM users WHERE activated='1'";


keeps returning this error:


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_LNUMBER in /home/******/********/index.php on line 14


I have tried canceling out as suggested on php.net using: 


$sql = SELECT COUNT(id) FROM users WHERE activated=\'1';


and receive:


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/******/********/index.php on line 35


because now it's incomplete. What's the issue? All suggestions I have found online are not working.

I am new to programming/php. I've seen good and bad video resources of people trying to teach newcomers but it ends up not working in the end. Maybe it's on my server, maybe not.


I am trying to get an html form to send email using php. I tried some video tutorials like, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2cVERxjSRY and the persons code in the video always works yet when you try to do it on your server it comes up short. I kept getting this error after writing the code as it is shown. 

PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected T_IF in /*********/*********/public_html/test/support-send.php on line 2


Here is the php code:

Line1: <?PHP>
Line2: if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
Line3: $body = 'Name: ' .$_POST['name'] ."\n"
Line4: .'Email: ' .$_POST['email'] ."\n"
Line5: .'Message: ' .$_POST['message'] .;
Line7: mail('myemail@mydomain.com', 'Contact Form', $body);
Line8: header('location: contact-thank-you.php');
Line10: } else {
Line11: header('location: contactform.php');
Line12: exit(0);
Line13: }
Line14: ?>
Can anyone tell me what is going on in line2 or how I can make the email action work another way?
