    connection to mysql table fails - basic

    hello all,

    i want to create an upload for images for my personal website.

    therefore i searched the internet for stuff relating to that. i found the following code which is kinda useful.

    Whenever I upload that stuff i get the following errors:
    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /kunden/giselbrecht.org/webseiten/share/share2/store.php3 on line 28

    Hopefully some of you guys can help me out on that, and save my day,



    // store.php3 - by Florian Dittmer <dittmer@gmx.net>
    // Example php script to demonstrate the storing of binary files into
    // an sql database. More information can be found at http://www.phpbuilder.com/

    <head><title>Store binary data into SQL Database</title></head>

    // code that will be executed if the form has been submitted:

    if ($submit) {

    //connect to db
    $host = "localhost";
    $user = "db34711_3";
    $pass = "philgise";
    $database = "db34711_3";

    $db = mysql_connect("$host","$user","$pass") or die ("Keine Verbindung moeglich");
    mysql_select_db("$database",$db) or die ("Datenbank fehlt");

    $data = addslashes(fread(fopen($form_data,"r"), filesize($form_data)));

    ****$result = mysql_query("INSERT INTO binary_data (description,bin_data,filename,filesize,filetype) VALUES ('$form_description','$data','$form_data_name','$form_data_size','$form_data_type')");

    ****$id = mysql_insert_id();
    ****print "<p>This file has the following Database ID: <b>$id</b>";

    ****mysql_close() or die ("Datenbank");

    } else {

    ****// else show the form to submit new data:

    ****<form method="post" action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF; ?>" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    ****File Description:<br>
    ****<input type="text" name="form_description"**size="40">
    ****<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000">
    ****<br>File to upload/store in database:<br>
    ****<input type="file" name="form_data"**size="40">
    ****<p><input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">

    please edit your post and add [ php] and [/php] tags for clarity, take the space out of the first tag.

    then do a search on unexpected T_VARIABLE either here or on google and you will have the problem explained.
