Registration process not populating database
After getting my password problems resolved, I have a new problem. I uploaded all pages to my site and tried the simple registration page. After hitting Register, I do get the "thank you for registering, please click on the link in your email inbox" page. I click on the link in the email to verify the email address, then get the "thank you for verifying, now please log in" page. When I try to log in, I get the error: "The login information provided is not valid, please try again." Also when checking the database, I see that a user did not get added to the database.
I get this same error whether or not I have a standalone "Users" database (built by executing the .sql script in phpmyadmin) or by going through the same procedure, but adding a "users" table to a preexisting database. When trying the two different databases, I was careful to change the database name in the localhost connections file, and reupload that.
Any ideas? Would it help to look at any of my files? If so I would be happy to attach.
