Ok so i made a a script with 2 files, db.php, and index.php...... here is my script:

// Database variables
$host = 'db304.perfora.net';
$user = 'dbo154983898';
$pass = 'Q439a.gw';
$dbname = 'db1549838989';

// Connect to Mysql Database
$mysql = mysql_connect($host,$user,$pass);
$db = mysql_select_db($dbname,$mysql);

//grab rveiews vars
function reviews($reviews) {
    $get_reviews = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query("select * from reviews"));
    $reviews = $get_reviews[$reviews];
    return $reviews;



echo ('<h4>Submit a Review</h4>');


    $title  = $_POST['title'];
    $posted = $_POST['posted'];
    $story = $_POST['story'];
    $picturepath = $_POST['picturepath'];
    $quality = $_POST['quality'];
    $effect = $_POST['effect'];
    $overall = $_POST['overall'];

    $options = "UPDATE reviews SET title='$title',posted='$posted',story='$story',picturepath='$picturepath',quality='$quality',effect='$effect',overall='$overall'";
    $update_options = mysql_query($options);
        echo("Reviews Submited.<br /><br />");

$config = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query("select * from reviews"));
    $title  = $config['title'];
    $posted = $config['posted'];
    $story = $config['story'];
    $picturepath = $config['picturepath'];
    $quality = $config['quality'];
    $effect = $config['effect'];
    $overall = $config['overall'];;

<form action="<? echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">

<table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="4" border="0" bgcolor="#f2f2f2">

  <td width="95">Title: </td><td width="352" style="border-right: 10px solid <? echo $bg1; ?>;"><input type="text" name="bg1" value="<? echo $title; ?>" size="20" /></td></tr>
  <td>Posted By : </td><td style="border-right: 10px solid <? echo $bg2; ?>;"><input type="text" name="bg2" value="<? echo $posted; ?>" size="20" /></td></tr>

First, don't post entire scripts. Second, your UPDATE statement has no where clause, which means you're updating all the records in the table. Third, I don't see any mysql_error() calls, so how can you determine what the problem is?
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
