Hello, I am having difficulties with this, I have been working weeks on getting a site finished and I'm down to the last couple of pages and this has become irritating. If you could help I would be very thankful.

Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/chaoskni/public_html/admin/insert.php on line 17
Error:


This is the edit_members.php code. (not the one displaying the error)

This is the code to the insert.php that handles the data sent from that page.

<?php 
require("auth.php");

@include '../f/fileid.php'; //config file
$connect = mysql_connect($db_host,$db_username,$db_password);
if (!$connect) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}
mysql_select_db($db_name)or die ("no select");
$date = mktime(0,0,0,$_POST[date_month],$_POST[date_day],$_POST[date_year]);
$insert="INSERT INTO members (`id` ,`uid` ,`rank` ,`game` ,`show_game` ,`aim` ,`show_aim` ,`msn` ,`show_msn` ,`yahoo` ,`show_yahoo` ,`email` ,`show_email` ,`date_joined` ,`show_date_joined` ,`display`)VALUES (NULL , '$_POST[uid]', '$_POST[rank]', '$_POST[game]', '0', '$_POST[aim]', '0', '$_POST[msn]', '0', '$_POST[yahoo]', '0', '$_POST[email]', '0', '$date', '1', '1');";
if (!mysql_query($insert,$sql))  {  die('Error: ' . mysql_error());  }
mysql_close($sql)?>

Any help would be appreciated. I know my code is sloppy :P I looked around at the other people who posted this error. Tried what was discussed, didn't work. So now I'm posting my own. I have made a successful connection to the database so it isn't due that that.
