    "PHP" syntax error returns 500

    You made a mistake during copy! Different host! (/public_html, /htdocs)

    I can not tell you unless I see the source of your index.php file.

        <?php include ('inc/array.php'); ?>
        <!DOCTYPE HTML>
        <?php include('inc/badhead.php'); ?>
          <div id="main">
            <div id="header">
              <div id="logo">
                <div id="logo_text">
                  <!-- class="logo_colour", allows you to change the colour of the text -->
                  <h1><a href="index.html">Bad<span class="logo_colour">Tech</span></a></h1>
                  <h2>No US Phishing Permit</h2>
        <div id="brake">&nbsp;</div>

"VALUES ('$username', '$email', '$password', '$avatar_path')"; //if the query is successful, redirect to welcome.php page, done if ($mysqli->query($sql) === true) { $_SESSION['message'] = 'Resgistration was successful we added $username to our list!'; header("location: welcome.php") } } else{ $_SESSION['message'] = "Sorry something went wrong we couldn't add you."; } else{ $_SESSION['message'] = 'Your avatar upload failed'; } else{ $_SESSION['message'] = 'Please only upload GIF, JPG, or PNG IMAGES'; } else{ $_SESSION['message'] = 'Your passwords did not match'; } } } } ?>

    Make a copy of that file and delete it off the server. That is so far off! What are you logging on to? what is logan1027? Surly not a pass word!! Way to much time debugging that!

    All your script is running before the form is ever presented. There is not a file on the server.

    <form class="form" action="form.php" method="post" enctype=

    Suggest installing a CMS and see how it works on this server.

  • so install a cms instead and logan1027 is my mysql password

    what am I supposed to do I honestly don't know how you are to format the sql login:
    $mysqli = new mysqli('', 'ezyro_20786443', 'logan1027', 'accounts');

  • I moved both of the php files to the main directory as welcome.php and form.php

    First thing is go back and edit your post removing sql username and password. Then change your sql password. There is some who visit the forum and will know how to use your database. And you just gave them access.

    If you are wanting to create a website from scratch (CMS) that uses database for hashing site users registration, log on, and profile, look for a basic beginner tutorial. But it is a long learn. Best to use a small CMS with user registration built in. Then try to theme or style (html/css). Not just jump in to database config files. I myself have not got that far. I have to use open source script for a user registration based site content. Wordpress is the most common. But there are others. So it depends what you need is for users on your site. Look at software install in control panel and try to find one that will suit your needs. It may be a while before your site goes live.

    You could also install it via the Script Installer in the control panel.
