I try to create some tables with this script but I get the message: “error creating ecards table” ($result1 in the code) . Can you please tell me how make it to work?

include ("serverdata.php");

$con = mysql_connect($dbHost,$dbUser,$dbPass);
mysql_select_db($dbName, $con);
  crd_key int(6) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  crd_name varchar(25) NOT NULL default '',
  crd_thumb blob,
  crd_date date NOT NULL default '0000-00-00',
  PRIMARY KEY  (crd_key)

CREATE TABLE ecards_categories (
  rub_key int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  rub_grp int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  rub_naam varchar(50) default NULL,
  KEY rub_naam (rub_naam)

$query3="INSERT INTO ecards_categories VALUES (1, 0, 'HOME');";

CREATE TABLE ecards_config (
  cfg_id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  cfg_username varchar(20) NOT NULL default '',
  cfg_password varchar(20) NOT NULL default '',
  cfg_language varchar(30) NOT NULL default '',
  cfg_bgcolor varchar(7) NOT NULL default '',
  PRIMARY KEY  (cfg_id)

$query5="INSERT INTO ecards_config VALUES (1, 'admin', 'admin', 'english.php', '#FFFFFF');";

CREATE TABLE ecards_send (
  snd_id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  snd_key varchar(14) default NULL,
  snd_date date NOT NULL default '0000-00-00',
  snd_read char(1) NOT NULL default '',
  PRIMARY KEY  (snd_id),
  UNIQUE KEY snd_key (snd_key)

$result1 = mysql_db_query($database,$query1) or die('error creating ecards table');
$result2 = mysql_db_query($database,$query2) or die('error creating ecards_categories table');
$result3 = mysql_db_query($database,$query3) or die('error inserting home categorie');
$result4 = mysql_db_query($database,$query4) or die('error creating ecards_config table');
$result5 = mysql_db_query($database,$query5) or die('error inserting in ecards_config table');
$result6 = mysql_db_query($database,$query6) or die('error creating ecards_send table');

echo "<FONT SIZE=4><b>All tables created successfully</b></FONT><BR><BR>";
echo "Now you can proceed to setting up your ecards application<BR>";
echo "<A HREF=\"./admin/index.php\">Click here</A> to go to the settings page and login with username 'admin' and password 'admin'<BR>";
