$hostname_mysql_connect = "localhost";
$database_mysql_connect = "website_members";
$username_mysql_connect = "root";
$password_mysql_connect = "******";
$tblname_mysql_connect ="members";

$mysql_connect = mysql_pconnect($hostname_mysql_connect, $username_mysql_connect, $password_mysql_connect, $tblname_mysql_connect) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
mysql_select_db($database_mysql_connect) or die(mysql_error());

$myusername = $_POST['myusername'];
$mypassword = $_POST['mypassword'];

$sql = "SELECT * FROM $tblname_mysql_connect WHERE username= '$myusername' and passwords='$mypassword'";
$result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

$count = mysql_num_rows($result);

if($count==1) {
header("location: login_success_welcome.php");

mysql_pconnect's 4th parameter [quote from]

The client_flags parameter can be a combination of the following constants: 128 (enable LOAD DATA LOCAL handling), MYSQL_CLIENT_SSL, MYSQL_CLIENT_COMPRESS, MYSQL_CLIENT_IGNORE_SPACE or MYSQL_CLIENT_INTERACTIVE.
It doesn't take a table name as the parameter.

Might I point out that this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $myusername = $_POST['myusername'];
  2. $mypassword = $_POST['mypassword'];
  4. $sql = "SELECT * FROM $tblname_mysql_connect WHERE username= '$myusername' and passwords='$mypassword'"; 
is a very very bad piece of code.

This makes you vulnerable to SQL injection, which is not a good thing to be.
Check out SQL Injection in the PHP manual to see why.
