<form name='update_pw' action='' method='post'>
Username: <input type='text' name='username_urs' /><br />

New PW: <input type='password' name='new_pw1_urs' /><br />
Confirm New PW: <input type='password' name='new_pw2_urs' /><br />
<input type='submit' name='submit' value='Change it!' />


the error code that keeps been displayed is
Parse error: parse error in H:\server\Apache2\htdocs\koc\TMP25ae9jga7r.php on line 28

the database is called test and the table used is called login and the fields for the username and password are username_urs and password_urs

try changing your line (28) from this...
if (mysql_num_rows($query) = 1) {

to this...
if (mysql_num_rows($query) > 0) {
or if you really need to make sure there is only one record returned ...
if (mysql_num_rows($query) == 1) {
