I have defined (just for testing) a user in my SQL named "pubuser" and granted it access to a database "publications." Of course I also created the database and two tables.

I can access and manipulate the tables via phpMyAdmin and I can log in to sql using pubuser via the command-line interface.

I have the following php code:

    <?php // login.php
    $db_hostname = 'localhost';
    $db_database = 'publications';
    $db_username = 'pubuser';
    $db_password = 'abc';

also I have a test web page:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;  charset=UTF-8">
<title>Connect to SQL</title>
Echo "Hello";
require_once 'login.php';
echo "got require";
$db_server = mysql_connect($db_hostname, $db_username, $db_password);
if (!$db_server)
 die("Unable to connect to MySQL: " . mysql_error());
 echo "Congrats, it seems you have connected to the server <br />
       host: $db_hostname<br />
       user: $db_username<br />
       password: $db_password <br  />
       for database: $db_database<br />";

If I try to run this, it briefly says "connecting to localhost" and then indefinitely it says "waiting for localhost..."

If I comment out the connect statement, the rest runs. What should I look for?
