On some servers, you need to explicitly give $err a value before concatenating, so put

$err="";

at the start.

[B]action="<?php echo $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];?>[/B]

From action is wrong. $_SERVER returns the current file name with system path, not URL. Should use '$_SERVER' or '$_SERVER'.

And this one should be better for error message.

if (isset($err) && $err != '') {
echo "<strong>Form Error(s)</strong><br/>";
echo "<font color='#cc3300'>". nl2br($err). "</font><br/>";
}
?>

Hope this help.
