pHp Form Send - Save Data to Table, send activation email?

I'm trying to crete a form that will create a user in my database, so they can have a profile page. I'd also like the form to send an email to confirm activation. Where is my form disconnecting? As of right now, I'm not logging any content in my db and no email is being sent.Thanks for taking a look at my code, and for giving me some suggestions.

<?php include ("session.php"); ?>
<?php // Set error message as blank upon arrival to page
$errorMsg = "";
// First we check to see if the form has been submitted 
if (isset($_POST['username'])){
//Connect to the database through our include 
include_once "connect_to_mysql.php";

Presuming join_form.php is the current form (use $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] instead)... Insert some debugging code so you can follow what is happening: at the top of the document put the following so you can see what is being passes.

var_dump($_POST);

After each `if' statement echo "Here 1" or "Here 2" so you can see where the code is going.

After your ereg_replace() use:

var_dump($username, $address, $state, $city, $accounttype, $email, $password);

Then you can start to debug your problem.
