This error comes for mismatch use of parenthesis but i didn't succeed in tracking it

Running this code, i am getting unexpected $end error
kindly track the error and let me know with the required change code.....

<?php

$host="localhost"; // Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="test_mysql"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select database.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

// Retrieve data from database
$sql="SELECT * FROM $tbl_name";
$result=mysql_query($sql);

// Start looping rows in mysql database.
while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
?>
<table width="400" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
<tr>
<td width="10%"><? echo $rows['id']; ?></td>
<td width="30%"><? echo $rows['name']; ?></td>
<td width="30%"><? echo $rows['lastname']; ?></td>
<td width="30%"><? echo $rows['email']; ?></td>
</tr>
</table>

<?
// close while loop
}

// close connection
mysql_close();
?>

I don't see anything specifically wrong with your php. But I did change short open tags and put a space before "or die".

The one thing you do want to change though is the placement of your <table></table> tags. They should be outside your while loop as you don't want them for every row (unless you really did want every row in its own table).

<?php

$host="localhost"; // Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="test_mysql"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select database.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password") or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name") or die("cannot select DB");

// Retrieve data from database
$sql="SELECT * FROM $tbl_name";
$result=mysql_query($sql);
?>
<table width="400" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
<?php
// Start looping rows in mysql database.
while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
?>
	<tr>
	<td width="10%"><?php echo $rows['id']; ?></td>
	<td width="30%"><?php echo $rows['name']; ?></td>
	<td width="30%"><?php echo $rows['lastname']; ?></td>
	<td width="30%"><?php echo $rows['email']; ?></td>
	</tr>
<?php
// close while loop
}
?>
</table>
<?php
// close connection
mysql_close();
?>

WELL! WITHOUT CHANGING YOUR CODE as LethargicCoder, did some little changes(he will be displaying rows inside table instead of tables as ur code)
I JUST CHECKED THE LINE 29,AND PUT SOMETHING LIKE THIS <?PHP.

<?php

$host="localhost"; // Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="test_mysql"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select database.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

// Retrieve data from database
$sql="SELECT * FROM $tbl_name";
$result=mysql_query($sql);

// Start looping rows in mysql database.
while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
?>
<table width="400" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
<tr>
<td width="10%"><? echo $rows['id']; ?></td>
<td width="30%"><? echo $rows['name']; ?></td>
<td width="30%"><? echo $rows['lastname']; ?></td>
<td width="30%"><? echo $rows['email']; ?></td>
</tr>
</table>

<?php
// close while loop
}

// close connection
mysql_close();
?>

Well you forgot to write PHP start tag.
Next time you post question, put the error message as well

There is no issue on braces, only one is opened and closed. as the above reply says thats the problem. I think so.
