I'm making a simple IP logger. I've tested the script, but the database doesn't seem to filling up. It could be a problem with the database format etc, details below. Otherwise, I must have made an newbie oversight in the PHP. Some fresh eyes would be greatly appreciated!

id: INT(10), unsigned, NN, primary key, auto_inc
page: VARCHAR(255), NN
logdate: VARCHAR(100), NN
ip: VARCHAR(100), NN


include 'ip_finder.php'; // IP finder script, returns the variable $IP
include 'config.php'; // Database details

$date = date("F j, Y, g:i a");

// echo $ref." ".$date." ".$IP." ".$agent;

$logger = "INSERT into doorbell ('page', 'logdate', 'ip', 'agent') VALUES ('$ref', '$date', '$IP', '$agent')";

if (!$logger){ 
	die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
	} else {
		echo "1 record added";

$logger = "INSERT into doorbell (page, logdate, ip, agent) VALUES ('$ref', '$date', '$IP', '$agent')";

hmmm. that seems to have done it... Although I swear I already tried without quotes...
some sort of devil magic going on..

Cheers mate!
