Why do I get zero sized reply???

Why after running the following script do I get zero sized reply??
It seems to hang when I access the $link_id (when comparing it, negating,
reading and so on) but it isn't an expected behaviour. Any clues??

include "common_db.inc";

$link_id = db_connect();
if(!$link_id) die(sql_error());
else echo "Successfully made a connection to $dbhost.<BR>";

$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbusername = 'phpuser';
$dbuserpassword = 'phppass';
$default_dbname = 'mysql';


function db_connect() {
global $dbhost, $dbusername, $dbuserpassword, $default_dbname;

$link_id = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbusername, $dbuserpassword);
if(!$link_id) {
$MYSQL_ERROR = "Connection failed to the host $dbhost.";
return 0;
else if(empty($dbname) && !mysql_select_db($default_dbname)) {
$MYSQL_ERRNO = mysql_errno();
$MYSQL_ERROR = mysql_error();
return 0;
else return $link_id;

function sql_error() {

if(empty($MYSQL_ERROR)) {
$MYSQL_ERRNO = mysql_errno();
$MYSQL_ERROR = mysql_error();
