As shown in the OP I am already doing that in the PHP scipt:
$host = "instance43490.db.xeround.com:8904";
And then passing that as the 1st param to mysql_connect

On the command line:
sudo mysql --host=instance43490.db.xeround.com --port=8904 --user=<realuser>
WORKS perfectly - entering the MySQL Monitor.
However, on the same host, same command line:
sudo mysql --host=instance43490.db.xeround.com:8904 --user=<realuser>
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.
