Thanks for that, but it didn´t make any difference.
I know that the listing.php connection file works cause the rest of my site is using it, but i still think that it might be somehow related to that file.
Even if i delete that whole section for the email and username check i still get the error No Database Selected.

This has been driving me nuts for days, any more suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks

$sql_email_check = mysql_query("SELECT email_address FROM users

$sql_username_check = mysql_query("SELECT username FROM users
WHERE username=\"$username\"");
$email_check = mysql_num_rows($sql_email_check);
$username_check = mysql_num_rows($sql_username_check);

try this... hope can get it...

$listing = mysql_connect($hostname_listing, $username_listing, $password_listing) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

In the php didn't have a command mysql_pconnect
should be mysql_connect

Error still there but now says 43 and 44 still no database selected error too.
Your help is much appreciated though, thanks
MsKazza

No to be silly but "No database selected" means "no database selected".

You need a mysql_select_db($database_name,$listing);
