I would appreciate help in getting mysql_connect to behave consistently 
on different machines. It does not work for me on a dual-processor 
server but will on other servers. On dual-processor machines, no matter 
what parameters are entered into the function, they are ignored. For 
example, with

$link = mysql_connect ("localhost", "ams", "amspassword")
    or die ("Could not connect as ams: " . mysql_error() );
if ($link && mysql_select_db ("refs"))
    return ($link);

the function defaults to localhost and no user or password, so the 
browser returns only 

Access denied for user: '@localhost' to database 'refs'

By chown'ing the calling script to different users other than mysql, the 
message will sometimes name a user--for example,

Access denied for user: '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' to database 'refs' (Using 
password: NO)

I've tried setting the mysql_default.socket in php.ini to the mysql 
socket, and that makes no difference.

How do I get mysql_connect to read its parameters? Why should this only 
be a problem on dual_processor machines?
