Manual reference:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-connect.php

resource mysql_connect ( [string server [, string username [, string
password [, bool new_link]]]])

Seeing it is not a web page you're connecting to, try removing the
"http://";.

"localhost" has particular meaning within the IP conventions - if
cgi.xyz.com is remote then only use that server's name and remove the
'local' designation, ie use the name from your computer's perspective,
not the remote computer's perspective. Use PING to ascertain that you
have the server's name expressed correctly.

The default values are "server =  'localhost:3306' " which may be
causing some confusion here. I recommend simplifying by leaving out the
port number (3306) for now - MySQL knows that (hopefully) and thus the
remote computer's RDBMS should be 'listening' on that port - if it's
not, we'll have to get downer-and-dirtier...

Let us know how you get on!
