logging in and signing up

On my signin page users can sign up, then they are transfered to a restricted access page just for logged in users. problem is after signing up they have to login as well to get the the restricted page. im sure i have a session error im just not sure how to fix it. how do i log users in at the same time that they sign up for the first time?

<?php require_once('Connections/signIn.php'); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "signUp")) {
$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO userdata (userName, userPassword, name, eMail) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['username'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['password'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['name'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['eMail'], "text"));

mysql_select_db($database_signIn, $signIn);
$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $signIn) or die(mysql_error());

$insertGoTo = "upload.php";
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
$insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));
