530 Error on my PHP page

I have a weird error on my PHP page

http://si gn go l d.com/n ew/ind ex.php  (remove the spaces)

in firefox i get a pop up telling me "530 in correct login"

the php code on that page looks like this:

            <?php
$link = mysql_connect("", "", "") OR DIE("Unable to connect to the database");
mysql_select_db("db151831259");
$sqlc = "select * from hometext";
$rsc  = mysql_query($sqlc) or die(mysql_error());
$rowc  =  mysql_fetch_array($rsc);
$hometext = $rowc['hometext'];
?>
        <span class="style4"><? echo $sValue = stripslashes($hometext); ?></span></p>


The username and password are correct because it pulls the text in from the database. Any idea what is going on?

1 - Can you paste the precise error message? It should give the line nulber of the php script...

2 - Is your script starting with <?php withihout any spave or empty line before?

3 - Not sure which fields are in your table 'hometext' in addition to field 'hometext' (same name for field and table, right?)
Just in case, could you replace the line
$sqlc = "select * from hometext";
with
$sqlc = "select hometext.hometext from hometext";
$debug=true; // easy to change
if ($debug) { echo "query is |$sqlc| -- "; }

its a pop up window that comes up stating:

Alert:
530 Login Incorrect

Then I press OK - if you copy and paste the link and remove the spaces you will see what i am talking about.

I will try the solution you provided
