Problem with PDO in php page

I’m having a problem with PDO. At the top of my index.php, I have the following:

// start of script every time.

//  setup a path for all of your canned php scripts
$php_scripts = '/home/foxclone/php/'; // a folder above the web accessible tree
//  load the pdo connection module  
require $php_scripts . 'PDO_Connection_Select.php';
require $php_scripts . 'GetUserIpAddr.php';

//   Begin the script here
$ip = GetUserIpAddr();
if (!$pdo = PDOConnect("foxclone_data")):
	echo "Failed to connect to database" ;
	$sql = "INSERT INTO Downloads (ip_address,filename) VALUES ('$ip','$down')";
	// use exec() because no results are returned


Further into index.php I have a download section that I want to record in the same table:

     $files = glob('download/*.iso');
     $file = $files[count($files) -1];
     $filename =  basename($file);
     $md5file = md5_file($file);

   <div class="container">
     <div class="divL">                       
       <h3>Get the "<?php echo "{$filename}";?>" file (approx. 600MB)</h3>
          <center>  <a href="<?php echo "/{$file}";?>"><img src="images/button_get-the-app.png" alt=""></a>  </center>
           	$sql = "INSERT INTO Downloads (ip_address,filename) VALUES ('$ip','$down')"; <-- parse error here

I’m getting the following error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘$sql’ (T_VARIABLE) in /home/foxclone/ but don’t understand why. Do I not need the $sql line?

Thanks in advance,

Looks like you might have just missed the semicolon in the preceding line.

Thanks for catching that.
