 // Connects to your Database 

 mysql_connect("your.hostaddress.com", "username", "password") or die(mysql_error()); 

 mysql_select_db("Database_Name") or die(mysql_error()); 

 //This code runs if the form has been submitted

 if (isset($_POST['submit'])) { 

 //This makes sure they did not leave any fields blank

 if (!$_POST['username'] | !$_POST['pass'] | !$_POST['pass2'] ) {

 		die('You did not complete all of the required fields');


 // checks if the username is in use

 	if (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {

 		$_POST['username'] = addslashes($_POST['username']);


 $usercheck = $_POST['username'];

 $check = mysql_query("SELECT username FROM users WHERE username = '$usercheck'") 

or die(mysql_error());

 $check2 = mysql_num_rows($check);

 //if the name exists it gives an error

 if ($check2 != 0) {

 		die('Sorry, the username '.$_POST['username'].' is already in use.');


this makes sure both passwords entered match

 	if ($_POST['pass'] != $_POST['pass2']) {

 		die('Your passwords did not match. ');


 	// here we encrypt the password and add slashes if needed

 	$_POST['pass'] = md5($_POST['pass']);

 	if (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {

 		$_POST['pass'] = addslashes($_POST['pass']);

 		$_POST['username'] = addslashes($_POST['username']);


 // now we insert it into the database

 	$insert = "INSERT INTO users (username, password)

 			VALUES ('".$_POST['username']."', '".$_POST['pass']."')";

 	$add_member = mysql_query($insert);
