Isn't that like saying that its the car manufacturers fault that we have
so many crashes? 

You're analogy is slightly flawed. When auto manufacturers make certain
repeatable mistakes (such as those encountered in software) that cause
costs they issue recalls so that these issues may be addressed.
Certainly auto mfgs' are not responsible for all crashes.

PHP provides a handy little function for most databases that allow you
to get a clearer view of what happened, mysql_error(). An example when
used with a query...

if(!($result = mysql_query($myQuery, $myDatabaseConnection))){
   echo mysql_error() . "\n";
