Hello,

I have a login/registration script thats altered to correspond with my database. It includes the login, logout, change password, email validation, etc. I have it setup pretty well however, when I hit submit, the information doesn't go into my database. I get the error message "Data Missing" which comes the activate.php. I check my query line over and over but I have been stuck for 3 days now. Can someone help me please? Heres the code/information:

I''d suggest you store the query that you hit in a string and echo it out. check if the insert query works in the backend. Coz sometimes in php you might not get the values properly.
and for pimary key pass null if it has auto increment in dB. dont pass '' instead pass null widout quotes.

Hi,

I agree with Chris... Use echo $sql_query to display if the query is working... If you are still unsure, try to use it through phpmyadmin and echo the query with values...

Secondly, when you run mysql_query, use or die with it..
E.g.:

mysql_query($sql) or die("Query failed: ".mysql_error());

It gives u more detail why query failed...

Thirdly, when you using auto_increment on a field, just put 0 in that filed value... mysql automatically assigns an id value to it..

Also, make sure your $id and $random values are coming correctly in the url that you giving in the activation email...

hi this is nathen,
