Hello,

For some reason php will not connect to a remote mysql server.. Using the
following code:

<?php
    $link = mysql_connect('hostname:3306', "username", "password")
        or die("Could not connect: " . mysql_error() . "\n");

    print ("Connected successfully");
    mysql_close($link);
?>


Returns the following error:

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /vws/blakecrosby.com/docs/test.php on line 2
Could not connect: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)



I can connect to the database using the mysql client from the same machine.
Any suggestions?
