PHP code for user registration and send verification mail

Here i am inserting user detail into “users_temp” table and sending user name, password and verification email to user email id.

$conn=mysqli_connect("localhost","root","") or die(mysqli_error($conn));
mysqli_select_db($conn, "chosenarticle") or die(mysqli_error($conn));
if (isset($_POST['user_registeration']))
    error_reporting( E_ALL );
    ini_set('display_errors', 1);
    $fullname = mysqli_real_escape_string($conn, $_POST['fullname']);
    $uemail = mysqli_real_escape_string($conn, $_POST['uemail']);
    $upassword = mysqli_real_escape_string($conn, $_POST['upassword']);
    $useridentity = mysqli_real_escape_string($conn, $_POST['useridentity']);
    $getEmail=mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE `user_email`='$uemail'") or die(mysqli_error($conn));
    if(empty( $fullname ) || empty( $uemail ) || empty( $upassword ) || empty( $useridentity ))
        $error='Required form field is missing';
    if ( $TotEmail>0 )
        $error='Entered email already exists!';
    if ($flag==1)
        $signUpError='<p style="color:#FF0000; text-aling:left;"><strong>ERROR</strong>: '.$error . '<br /></p>'; 
    if ( $flag==0 )
        $random_generate_pass_str = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuwxyz0123456789";
        $tempPass = ""; //remember to declare $pass as an array
        $alphaLength = strlen($random_generate_pass_str) - 1; //put the length -1 in cache
        for ($i = 0; $i < 7; $i++)
            $n = rand(0, $alphaLength);
            $tempPass.= $random_generate_pass_str[$n];
        mysqli_query($conn, "insert into `users_temp` (`user_email`, `password`, `full_name`, `type`, `varification_code`) values('$uemail', '$md5pass', '$fullname', '$useridentity', '$varification_code')") or die(mysqli_error($conn));
        $query = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT id from users_temp WHERE `user_email` = '$uemail' AND varification_code='$varification_code'") or die(mysqli_error($conn));
        $result = mysqli_fetch_assoc($query);
        $lastid = $result['id'];
        $subject="Account Created Successfully";
        $headers = 'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8';
        $headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
        $headers .= "From: PHPKIDA Team <>\r\n";
        //$headers .= ',';
        $message="<strong>Dear ".$fullname."</strong><br>Thank you for registering with Chosen Articles.<br>Below are your login credentials:<br><strong>Email-Id: ".$uemail."<br>Password: ".$upassword."</strong><br><br>Click this link to active your account:<br>".$varification_url."<br><br><br>Best Regards,<br>PHPKIDA Team";
        mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );

if (isset($_REQUEST['nonid']) && isset($_REQUEST['norplyemail']) && isset($_REQUEST['verifycode']) && !empty($_REQUEST['nonid']) && !empty($_REQUEST['norplyemail']) && !empty($_REQUEST['verifycode']))
    $nonid = $_REQUEST['nonid'];
    $norplyemail = $_REQUEST['norplyemail'];
    $verifycode = $_REQUEST['verifycode'];
    $GetAru=mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * FROM users WHERE `user_email` = '$norplyemail'");
        $query = mysqli_query($conn, "select * from users_temp where `user_email` = '$norplyemail' AND `id` ='$nonid' AND varification_code='$verifycode'");
        $result = mysqli_fetch_assoc($query);
            $insert=mysqli_query($conn, "insert into users(user_email, password, full_name, type, status, varify) values('$email', '$password', '$fullname', '$type', '1', '1')");
            $Msg="<p class='success_register'>Your account has been activated, you can now login.</p>";
