The MySQL command line doesn't support putting the port number there, but the 
first parameter of mysql_connect does. If this is the problem then it cannot be 
true that replacing the variables you were taking from $_POST with literal 
strings for the username and password worked, as I asked earlier to which you 
said it does.

Replace the first parameter to your mysql_connect call with 
'instance43490.db.xeround.com:8904' and it will probably work.
