Janet and Miles, Thank you for your suggestions.

Here is more information for you.
I am running:
    Fedora core 5 Linux 
    php 5.14
    apache 2.2.2
    mysql 5.0.22

I have added the mysql_error code to my script as you suggested.
I already knew the what the error was by looking in the error logs.
It is, "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)"

I have run phpinfo, and it appears that MYSQL is enabled.
The MYSQL_SOCKET line in phpinfo( ) gives the path to the socket file
exactly as above.
I have checked and the socket is there with read and execute
permissions for everyone.
I did try to connect using and got a similar error message,
   "Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (13)"

I can connect to the server just fine at the command line with the
mysql client,
using the command     >mysql -hlocalhost -u<usename> -p<password>

The socket declaration in my.cnf is /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock so it
what php expects.

What other suggestions can you give to me?
Thank you.
