Using action="<?php 'mypages/contact.php' ?>" method="post" >

I get this:
Warning:  mysql_real_escape_string() [function.mysql-real-escape-string]: Access denied for user '***'@'localhost' (using password: NO) 
in /home/***/***/***/mypages/contact.php on line 27

and html source code it says action=" "

I have not set up any users and that I do not connect to the database within contact.php file
however i check for the sql injections like:

if(isset($_POST['btnshoot'])) { 
$name = mysql_real_escape_string(htmlentities(strip_tags(stripslashes(trim($_POST['name'])))));// etc

using action="<?php $_GET['mypages/contact.php'] ?>" method="get"  i get:

Not Found
The requested URL /***/<br /><b>Notice</b>:  
Undefined index:  mypages/contact.php in
<b>/home/***/***/***/mypages/contact.php</b> on 
line <b>211</b><br /> was not found on this server.
