I have come to the realization that my host must be using an older version of PHP, because I used mysql_connect and it did the trick. Thanks everyone for your help!

Hah isnt it funny how that works. Glad you figured it out.

yea, sorry, i now feel that the thread was unnecessary, as it ended up being a stupid solution. The reason that took me so long was I thought register.com would be a big enough company to keep their software updated, so I overlooked that as a possible problem.

Met, you're an idiot for the most recent post. What version were they running? If you're just talking 4 vs. 5, a LOT of companies still use 4.
If you found a specific build of one that has errors in mysqli, then it's a bigger problem than just a company 'not keeping software updated.'

Oh.. And do add that little check I gave.. On multiuser/multitasking/networked systems ALWAYS check and verify you actually got what you requested. Don't assume you'll get it. Check, check, double check.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

How am I an idiot for assuming that companies would want to compete with other companies by updating something that is free software?

Define updating. What version of PHP are we even talking about? Moving from PHP4 to PHP5 is not an 'upgrade' in the sense you're talking. Not all newer software is better. A lot of companies choose to support PHP4 over 5 still. Tell me what versions you're talking about.
