    Problem pulling from the datbase and displaying on webpage

    i created a webpage with a form which submits data to a database and also sends a URL to an email address with random ID at the end which will link to specific data from the database when viewed in a browser

    when i try and pull the data nothing seems to display, heres my code:

    PHP Code:

    // since the id is being passed in the url, you will need to declare it using the get method
    $rand $_GET['rand'];
    $action $_GET['action'];

    // if an id was sent to the script, then execute it
    if ($rand)
    // connection vars
    $host "localhost";
    $user "****";
    $password "****";
    $dbname "****";
    $tablename "cards";

    // connect to and select the database
    @mysql_connect($host,$user,$password) or die("&success=no&");
    mysql_select_db($dbname) or die("&success=no&");

    // query the database and return an array of data
    $result = @mysql_query("SELECT * FROM $tablename WHERE rand = $rand") or die("&success=no&");

    // break the array down into the parts you need
    while($row mysql_fetch_array($result)){

    $youremail urlencode($row['youremail']);
    $name urlencode($row['name']);
    $receiveremail urlencode($row['receiveremail']);
    $message $row['message'];

    $message str_replace('\n''\r'$message);
    $message str_replace('\r\n''\r'$message);
    $message str_replace('<br>''\r'$message);
    $message str_replace('%0D%0A''\r'$message);

    // if there was a result echo the stuff below

    "my name is "$name" my email address is ",$youremail," " ?>


    This is how im adding to the databse

    PHP Code:
    // insert your data here with $rand as the id
    $youremail mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['youremail']);
    $name mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['name']);
    $receiveremail mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['receiveremail']);
    $message mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['message']);

    $query="INSERT INTO $tablename (rand, youremail, name, receiveremail, message) 
     VALUES ('"
    .$rand."', '".$youremail."', '".$name."', '".$receiveremail."',   '".$message."')"

    Are you getting any error in your Apache's log file? (if you are using Apache as web server, of course.. ). If you dont have an specified file for it written in your virtual host, it should be in /var/log/apache2/error.log if your are under Linux.
