I know there are many posts on this subject, however after reading them I am still not seeing what the problem is in my code.

I have run the SQL Query in phpmyadmin and it works fine, calling up the correct entry from the database.

The error is being raised in the function "process_login()" at the line that reads

$Result = mysql_query ($Query, $Connection) or die("Query failed : " . mysql_error($Connection));

Here is the code I pulled together from 3 different files (2 includes) to try and debug it all in one file.

<?php
// set_include_path("./inc");
// require_once "sqlFunctions.php";
// require_once "loginBox.php";
$hostname="localhost";
$database="testDataBase";
$username="phpuser";
$password="phpuser";
$Connection = false;

$UserData;
$LoginErrorMsg;

if($_POST[mode]=="LogIn"){process_login();}
if($_POST[mode]=="LogOut"){logout_user();}

function connectToDatabase(){
  global $hostname, $username, $password, $database, $DeBug;
	if($Connection){return (1);}
	if($Connection=mysql_connect($hostname,$username,$password)){
		mysql_select_db ($database, $Connection) or die('Database connection error: ' . mysql_error($Connection));
		return (1);
  }else{return (0);}  // handle error elsewhere
};

function disconnect(){
	global $Connection;
	if($Connection != NULL){mysql_close($Connection);}
}

function process_login(){
	global $UserData,$Connection,$LoginErrorMsg,$database,$DeBug;
 	if($Connection == NULL){$connectionStatus = connectToDatabase();}
// if(!$connectionStatus){myErrorHandeler("No server connection");}
	$Query = "SELECT * FROM logins WHERE login = '$_POST[LoginName]' AND pwd = password('$_POST[LoginPassword]')";
	$Result = mysql_query ($Query, $Connection) or die("Query failed : " . mysql_error($Connection));
  if(mysql_num_rows($Result)){
		$UserData = mysql_fetch_array($Result);
		mysql_free_result($Result);
	  $_SESSION[Verified]=1;
    $_SESSION[UserId]=$UserData{'id'};
    $_SESSION[UserFname]=$UserData{'Fname'};
		return 1;
  }else{
		mysql_free_result($Result);
    $_SESSION[Verified]='';
    $_SESSION[UserId]='';
	  $_SESSION[UserFname]='';
    $LoginErrorMsg='<br>Login Name<br>and/or password<br>is invalid.';
		return 0;
	}
}

function print_login_box(){
	global $UserData,$LoginErrorMsg;
?>
	<form action="<?php echo $ConfigData{'scriptname'}?>" method="POST">
<?php if($_SESSION[UserId] == 0){ ?>
  Name:<input type="text" size="16" maxlength="16" name="LoginName" value="<?php echo $_POST[LoginName] ?>"><br>
  Password:<input type="password" size="16" maxlength="16" name="LoginPassword" value="<?php echo $_POST[loginPassword] ?>"><br>
	<input type="submit" name="mode" value="LogIn"><br>
	<font color="#D8D8D8"><?php echo $LoginErrorMsg; ?></font>
	<input type="hidden" name="Currentpage" value="<?php echo $_SESSION[Currentpage] ?>">
<?php }else{ ?>
	<input type="hidden" name="Currentpage" value="<?php echo $_SESSION[Currentpage] ?>">
  <font color="#D8D8D8">Welcome back,<br>
	<?php echo $_SESSION[UserFname];if($_SESSION[Verified]!=1){echo "*";} ?></font>
	<input type="submit" name="mode" value="Log Out">
<?php } ?>
  </form>
<?php } ?>
