I had a similar problem the other day I think. plus many permission
problems. But I got it work.
I added these two lines to the bottom of my /etc/my.cnf file
Just put in the path to your sock file and see if that helps.

Janet and Miles, Thank you for your suggestions.
Here is more information for you.
I am running:
Fedora core 5 Linux
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
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 127.0.0.1 and got a similar error message,
"Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (13)"
I can connect to the server just fine at the command line with the
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?
