This has an error way down at the $result=mysql_query($query) line.

Anyone knows whats up? Or could it be my login info? Is localhost bad?

Wrong

$query="INSERT INTO generalContact (  
            email,  
            city,
            state;
        VALUES(

            '".$state."';

Correct

$query="INSERT INTO generalContact (  
            email,  
            city,
            state)
        VALUES('$email', '$city', '$state')";
