Give us more info with regard to what you need to update in the member db. Also this is very dangerous SQL - not cleaned so you're vulnerable to SQL injection. Use mysql_real_escape_string if you insist on using mysql_* functions. Ohterwise switch to mysqli or PDO.

Here are my email_activation db:

CREATE TABLE 'email_activation' (
  'id' int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  'username' varchar(25) NOT NULL,
  'email' varchar(25) NOT NULL,
  'password' varchar(25) NOT NULL,
  'activation' int(6) NOT NULL default '0',
  'check_activation' int(6) NOT NULL default '0',
  PRIMARY KEY  ('id')
) ;

and I want to add username,email,password,postcode into member db.

Why don't you just have an extended members table with a status and activation_code fields?

looks like you need to run another query after user has activated the membership. He is a short example, note: mysql_insert_id() will be removed in future version of php.. As diafol suggested, you should move to pdo or mysqli

    //Run Error code

    $new_id = mysql_insert_id();

    $new_member = mysql_query("INSERT INTO memebers_db(id, username, email, passcode, postal) VALUES('$id', '$username', '$email', '$passcode', '$postal') LIMIT 1");

        die('Internal Error!', mysql_error());
