I am a newbie and am at a loss on how to clear field of a form.
My current form is the tradition form that check to see if it has been submitted.
After it has, validation of each field is performed and if all is ok a record is inserted in the data base. However, if validation fails, the error and the fields previously entered are redisplayed. When the error is corrected the form is again submitted and record inserted. At this point, I am trying to clear the form (reset it) by using first: clearing the $_post array and checking for empty did not work
second: setting and destroyinga session..did not work....any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Clear out your db credentials and email settings while you still can. Next time, remove them before posting.

Line 19 clears those variables when $_post ("submit") is unset after the write is performed at line 164 at least i think so
