    With Dreamweaver and PHP, I am trying to use an HTML form that I created to add tables to my MySQL database, but it's just not adding! The MySQL Database is called 'login' and the table is called 'users', and here is the code I put into Dreamweaver:

    $query = mysql_query("INSERT INTO users VALUES ('','$name','$username','$enc_password')")

    Any suggestions?

    Use this syntax, it's clearer:

    INSERT into USERS ('ID','name','username','password') VALUES (NULL,'$name','$username','$enc_password')

    I do hope that you are escaping each string using mysql->real_escape_string.

    I also suggest you use mysqli over mysql.

    maybe you can tell us more if there are any error using:

    $query = mysql_query("INSERT into USERS ('ID','name','username','password') VALUES (NULL,'$name','$username','$enc_password')") or die(mysql_error());

    I have assumed that the first field is an ID field.
