I think you need curly braces around your $_POST variables:
$query = "INSERT INTO members (ID,Fname,Lname,Email,Phone,Username) VALUES ('{$_POST[id]}','{$_POST[fname]}','{$_POST[lname]}','{$_POST[email]}','{$_POST[phone]}','{$_POST[username]}')";

You only need the curly braces when an array variable is specified within a string.

Hmm, try this:
$query = "INSERT INTO members (ID,Fname,Lname,Email,Phone,Username) VALUES ('{$_POST['id']}','{$_POST['fname']}','{$_POST['lname']}','{$_POST['email']}','{$_POST['phone']}','{$_POST['username']}')";

$_POST['id'] must be coming from an html form somewhere, right?

I think the value of $_POST['id'] may not be set - when I view the link you gave, I'm not posting data to the page because I'm not filling in the html form that sets it.

You could add this to your code to get an idea of what's in $_POST:

print_r($_POST)

Apologies - I should've seen it in the code above.

You are missing a semi-colon after this line:
echo "Brother you have been added";mysql_close($con)

For readability, it should probably be changed to:
echo "Brother you have been added";
mysql_close($con);

Another try below - the only substantial change is I moved a curly brace for an if statement, but it includes the other corrections I've suggested too.
Try changing:
 
 
if (isset($_POST['submit'])) { // Handle the form.
 
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","phimualp_defjam9","3490d32");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }mysql_select_db("phimualp_members", $con);
 
}
 
 
//      if ($id && $fn && $ln && $e && $p && $un && $pw) { // If everything's OK.
 
 
                // Make sure the username is available.
//              $query = "SELECT * FROM members";
        //      $result = @mysql_query ($query);
 
        //      if (mysql_num_rows($result) == 0) { // Available.
error_reporting(0);
$ebits = ini_get('error_reporting');
error_reporting($ebits ^ E_NOTICE);
                        // Add the user.
                        $query = "INSERT INTO members (ID,Fname,Lname,Email,Phone,Username) VALUES ('$_POST[id]','$_POST[fname]','$_POST[lname]','$_POST[email]','$_POST[phone]','$_POST[username]')";
                if (!mysql_query($query,$con))
                  {
                  die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
                  }
                echo "Brother you have been added";mysql_close($con)
 
 
?>
 
 
to:
 
 
if (isset($_POST['submit'])) { // Handle the form.
 
  $con = mysql_connect("localhost","phimualp_defjam9","3490d32");
  if (!$con) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }
  mysql_select_db("phimualp_members", $con);
 
  //      if ($id && $fn && $ln && $e && $p && $un && $pw) { // If everything's OK.
 
 
                // Make sure the username is available.
  //              $query = "SELECT * FROM members";
        //      $result = @mysql_query ($query);
 
        //      if (mysql_num_rows($result) == 0) { // Available.
  error_reporting(0);
  $ebits = ini_get('error_reporting');
  error_reporting($ebits ^ E_NOTICE);
  
  // Add the user.
  $query = "INSERT INTO members (ID,Fname,Lname,Email,Phone,Username) VALUES ('{$_POST['id']}','{$_POST['fname']}','{$_POST['lname']}','{$_POST['email']}','{$_POST['phone']}','{$_POST['username']}')";
  if (!mysql_query($query,$con)) {
    die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
  }
  echo "Brother you have been added";
  mysql_close($con);
}
 
?>

The code was trying to add a user before the form was submitted, so the user value wasn't available. I shifted the ending curly brace for:
if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {

No problem.

Just a quick note - you might want to change your MySQL password for the phimualp_defjam9 user, as it's available for the public to see in your code above.
