my question is, it inserts all the values in the database except date of birth, 
values are storing like :
id  username  email              password         repeatpassword     phone      date
7   akbar   akbarbai@gmail.com  baiakbar    baiakbar    2147483647  0000-00-00.
How to solve this...
I need:

prit is right about the format, because if MySQL has a "date" field, it wants it in yyyy-mm-dd and will reject anything else.

Also, why on earth are you storing
a) a password with no apparent hashing or encryption??? Major security problem.
b) the repeat password? You won't ever look at it after validation so what's the use in storing the same thing twice?

While I'm on security, you have no escaping, so you are vunerable to "SQL injection" - might be worth looking at that.

Finally to note, mysql_query() was deprecated as of PHP 5.5, so you really ought to at least look at PDO or mysqli.
