Could you post the connectmysql function

Damm mac can't do anything on it!

EDIT:

code:

<?
include 'mysqlfunctions.php';  //I think this is the file name hmm...

$link = connectmysql();

mysql_select_db("backstabbers" ,$link);

$result = mysql_query("UPDATE userinfo ". "SET pas='$passid' . "WHERE id='$id'");

?>

I think that
$result = mysql_query("UPDATE userinfo ". "SET pas='$passid' . "WHERE id='$id'");

should be more like

$result = mysql_query("UPDATE userinfo SET pas=".$passid." WHERE id=".$id);

you had your .'s in places where they shouldn't be and stuff ...

the . is used to attach two strings ... like in turing you do like
someString := string1 + " " + string2
in PHP it's
$someString = $string1 . " " . $string2
