I think he means PHP Syntax..
Answer: No. Totally different! It also depends on the database that you're using, probably MySQL.
Take a look at this tutorial:
Because it sounds like you're going to need to know more than just how to write to the database! Interacting with a database (including writing to it) requires the use of SQL (a language). PHP has methods like mysql_query() that accept SQL statements as strings and execute the SQL query on the database.
Have a look at the tutorial and try out some examples before applying it to your signup.php page.
