Hello James, Maybe you don't have Mysql installed or Up.
first you need have Mysql installed on your system.
At your prompt type : rpm -qa | grep mysql
Second : if you have mysql installed, you will see the name of the rpm package.
Now look if your mysql is Up and running :
At your prompt type : cd /etc/rc.d/init.d/
At your prompt type : cd /var/lib/mysql
If your mysql is running you will see an file named mysql.sock .
If you don't have mysql installed download it at www.mysql.com
I'm Sorrry by my poor English.
