<title>Now opening random page..</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
var newLocation = new Array();
var index;
newLocation[0] = 'http://www.google.com';
newLocation[1] = 'http://www.allgamesallfree.com/';
newLocation[2] = 'http://www.yahoo.com';
newLocation[3] = 'http://www.msn.com';

index = Math.floor(Math.random()*newLocation.length);
document.write('<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"refresh\" CONTENT=\"0; URL='+newLocation[index]+'\">');

No mysql or php required, just copy that into html, add as many links as you want using that format then make a link to the html page on your site and it will bring you to a different page everytime, I do this to make a random game button on my site http://www.allgamesallfree.com so you can see the script at work here: http://www.allgamesallfree.com/RandomGame.html

He wanted a solution in PHP or mysql, not in javascript. If the user surf around with javascript disabled, your code wont work. Or if the user has javascript enabled but meta-refreshed turned off, the script wont work either.
