Hi everybody, I'm a newbie to this forum. My name is Andrea and I'm Italian.
So, to get to the point i want to learn php and I'm trying to write an email validation script but I don't understand where I make a mistake.
I've already created a page (inscription.php) where someone can register himself and then an email is sent to his email box.
Register page creates and store in mysql database an activation key that it is also sent to the user
The Url included in the message calls another php page (verify.php) that compares the activation key with that stored in mysql and actives user account.
It seems to run but when i check the database, it isn't updated.
Could anyone suggest me the way to solve it?
Thank you very much and sorry if my English isn't good.

mysql_connect("localhost", "emailval", "emailval") or die(mysql_error());

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

$queryString = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];

if(isset ($queryString)) {

    	$query = "SELECT * FROM membre"; 

	$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
	while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

	if ($queryString == $row["activationkey"]){

	echo "Congratulations!" . $row["login"] . 
	" is now the proud new owner of an TEST.com account.";

       	$sql="UPDATE membre SET activationkey = '', 
	status='activated' WHERE (id = $row[id])";

	} else {

         echo "error";
