php Change Password Function

I am trying to figure out to make a password change form and function from some sample code so I can use it for another project.  The sample has a form with an authentication function and a link with a registration form and function.  

I figure I should be able to copy the "addUser.php" code, and modify it to update the user's password.  I think I've got it pretty close, but I can't even get the form to open.  It keeps bombing with a parse error on the line:
  <form action="<? $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] ?>" name="myForm" method="post">

Can someone tell me what I've got wrong here??

Thanks, Lynn
changePass.php
addUser.php
index.php
CLdbUser.php

Take the offending line of code, and change it to this:
<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];?>" name="myForm" method="post">

or simply this:
<form action="" name="myForm" method="post">

Thanks for the response.  I tried both, but still get the error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ']' in /home/students/ics325s12/ics325s1210/public_html/lab22/changePass.php on line 28

You're missing a '   in line 8 of changePass.php
It is:

             $newPswd = $_POST['newPassword];

But should be:

             $newPswd = $_POST['newPassword'];
