Thanks for the quick reply.

The error message was indicating that it couldn't find the mysql.sock file and your 
suggestion of pointing the entry in php.ini to that location fixed the problem 

The new location on one machine was /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock - I don't have the 
correct permissions on the other machine to update php.ini as this is run by another 
company. Interestingly enough, I upgraded a third machine yesterday after your email 
arrived and this worked flawlessly - it was running RedHat 6.1/MySQL 3.23.27-beta and 
the mysql.sock was located in the expected place in /tmp.

However, this still does not explain why previous versions of PHP can find the 
mysql.sock file without problem while 4.0.5 has trouble - I note that there has been 
quite a few changes to the ext/mysql/php_mysql.c file and suppose that something has 
been slightly broken there. Is this likely to be fixed?

Thanks again

What is the error message you get?
Can you also try to set: mysql.default_socket to the location where you mysql soscket 
(Probably: /tmp/mysql.sock or /var/lib/mysql.sock).

Two systems have been upgraded from 4.0.4pl1 to 4.0.5 and both have then failed to 
connect to a MySQL database using 'localhost' in the mysql_connect or mysql_pconnect 
calls. The MySQL installation has not been upgraded. Replacing the with the 
4.0.4pl1 version and restarting apache fixes the problem as does changing 'localhost' 
to '' (plus a similar mod to mysql db and user tables in the database so that 
the host names match).

The MySQL version is 3.23.32
