     echo '<form action="login.php" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="ac" value="log"> '; 
     echo 'Username: <input type="text" name="username" />'; 
     echo 'Password: <input type="password" name="password" />'; 
     echo '<input type="submit" value="Login" />'; 
     echo '</form>';

You should try to comment with /* */ each block inside IF conditions, and check step by step every part

remove all semi-colons following the curly brackets.

if(){

}

else{

}

please refer to the proper syntax usage in PHP here or here. You can also search google for PHP basic construct and semantics.
