Php ipn help


I’m trying to get a user to register through a registration page and have that user entered into my sql db before being redirected to paypal. Before he pays the "activated column in datebase will be set to zero and afterwards paypal’s ipn will set the value to one…allowing him to login. I’m getting a few errors and I need a little help but before you do, realize that most of this code is a little advanced for me and i’ve learned what i know now from tutorials explaining the ipn process. So, Please explain any changes in the code

This is where I am getting my first problem at the bottom I have an html form to send to the database. It will not send because of the last lineof the form to deal with the user_id…even when I tried to use php curl


include 'db.php';

// Define post fields into simple variables
$First_Name = $_POST['First_Name'];
$Last_Name = $_POST['Last_Name'];
$Email_ID = $_POST['Email_ID'];

any escaped characters. */

$Last_Name = stripslashes($Last_Name);
$Email_ID = stripslashes($Email_ID);
$Username = stripslashes($Username);
$Password = stripslashes($Password);

/* Do some error checking on the form posted fields */

if((!$First_Name) || (!$Last_Name) || (!$Email_ID) || (!$Username) || (!$Password)){
	echo 'You did not submit the following required information! <br />';
		echo "First Name is a required field. <br /> Please enter it below.<br />";
		echo "Last Name is a required field. <br /> Please enter it below.<br />";

		echo "Desired Username is a required field. <br /> Please enter it below.<br />";
		echo "Desired Password is a required field. <br /> Please enter it below.<br />";
	include 'signup.php'; // Show the form again!
	/* End the error checking and if everything is ok, we'll move on to
	 creating the user account */
	exit(); // if the error checking has failed, we'll exit the script!
/* Let's do some checking and ensure that the user's email address or Username
 does not exist in the database */
 $sql_email_check = mysql_query("SELECT Email_ID FROM users WHERE Email_ID='$Email_ID'");
 $sql_Username_check = mysql_query("SELECT Username FROM users WHERE Username='$Username'");
 $email_check = mysql_num_rows($sql_email_check);
 $Username_check = mysql_num_rows($sql_Username_check);
 if(($email_check > 0) || ($Username_check > 0)){
 	echo "Please fix the following errors: <br />";
 	if($email_check > 0){
 		echo "<strong>Your email address has already been used by another member in our database. Please submit a different Email address!<br />";
 	if($Username_check > 0){
 		echo "The Username you have selected has already been used by another member in our database. Please choose a different Username!<br />";
 	include 'signup.php'; // Show the form again!
 	exit();  // exit the script so that we do not create this account!
/* Everything has passed both error checks that we have done.
It's time to create the account! */

// Enter info into the Database.
$info2 = htmlspecialchars($info);
$sql = mysql_query("INSERT INTO users (First_Name, Last_Name, Email_ID, Username, Password, signup_date)
		VALUES('$First_Name', '$Last_Name', '$Email_ID', '$Username', '$Password', '$db_password', '$info2', now())") or die (mysql_error());

	echo 'There has been an error creating your account. Please contact the webmaster at';

I am al gettin an error here at the end of the if statement…

$update_Activated = mysql_query(“UPDATE ‘users’ SET Activated=‘1’ WHERE ‘User_ID’='”.$User_ID.“'”);
im lost at this point but I need this code to update my users activated status…

						$log_query = mysql_query("INSERT INTO 'log' VALUES ('','".$txn_id."','".$payer_email."')") 
						//update Activated to 1

  fclose ($fp);


// database connection

// premium check function
function is_Activated() {
