That's an odd statement to make, given that you know the script doesn't work.

Try executing your queries from some other client program (such as mysql).
Then you can see whether or not they really work as you expect.

Also, when you say you're getting NO errors!, how do you know?  Are you
checking the result of *every* MySQL-related function call to make sure
that they succeed.  If you're not, you're shooting yourself in the foot.
