    Hello All, I am new to this forum and new to PHP. In Flash i am building a login system for my website. To do this I need to create a php file for Flash to connect to the mysql database. Now, i am a complete novice to php and i am struggling to find the right code for my php file.
    Mysql database is called "example" and my table is called users.

    My php file is below: Can you please take a close look. I know it's probably full of errors but i have only just started learning php. Can you please highlight the errors for me and if i am missing something can you please tell me.
    PHP Code:
    //Declare variables
    $id $_POST['id'];
    $email $_Post['email'];
    $username $_POST['username']; 
    $password $_POST['password'];
    $age $_POST['age'];
    $country $_POST['location'];
    $gender $_POST['gender'];
    //connects to database
    $link mysql_connect("localhost""example""password") or die (mysql_error());
    mysql_select_db("example_users") or die(mysql_error());
    //collects data from table
    $data mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE col_username='$username' AND col_password='$password'");
    if (
    mysql_num_rows($data) == 0) {
    "systemResult=The login detail dont much our records";
    else {
      while (
    $row mysql_fetch_assoc($data)) {
    $userbio $row["name"];

    // escape username and password for use in SQL
    $user mysql_real_escape_string($user);
    $pwd mysql_real_escape_string($pwd);
    $sql "SELECT * FROM users WHERE
    $user "' AND password='" $pwd "'"
    // more code

    I, for one, love it when people copy a post from another forum (including some non-post content) and paste it somewhere else. I love it even more when the original thread looks like it's been answered already. Even more when that all happened a couple weeks earlier.
