I believe you sql statement is incorrect, and some of your logic maybe incorrect as well. I wrote out the code you may want to try. Using $_POST inputs need to be sanitized and valided before you insert in to database. You are leaving yourself open for errors and attacks without.

Here is your query updated to correct format. You were missing field names, the values had nowhere to go.

$reg_query = "INSERT INTO `account` (`field_name`,`field_name`,`field_name`) VALUES('{$_POST['value']}', '{$_POST['value']}')";

    $reg_result = mysqli_query($con, $reg_query);

        echo 'Failed! <a href="register.php">Back</a>';
        header("Location: index.php");

You'll never get a compile-time error.

You are using unsanitized input in your SQL - please bind parameters with prepared queries to make them safer.

Also you do not give "or die" statements with your mysqli functions, so you don't see any errors, if that's where they are.

I don't think we needed register.php - it didn't add anything to the question.

In addition, the form is table-ized for some reason. We tried to stop doing that over 10 years ago. It's also a pain to read all that html. <center> is also dead.

I would suggest reading some tutorials on html and basic php, preferably a very recent one. The php manual is extremely useful: http://php.net

Thank you guys for your information! Now it works out with your help! :)
