I'm doing a simple database connection using the follow syntax:

  <title>Book-O-Rama Search Results</title>
<h1>Book-O-Rama Search Results</h1>
  if (!$searchtype || !$searchterm)
     echo "You have not entered search details.  Please go back and try

  $searchtype = addslashes($searchtype);
  $searchterm = addslashes($searchterm);

  @ $db = mysql_pconnect("localhost", "bookorama", "bookorama123");

  if (!$db)
     echo "Error: Could not connect to database.  Please try again later.";

When I go to the search page and hit submit  (after removing the @ to see an
error on the mysql_pconnect line)
I get Warning: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/jhankins/public_html/mydirectory/results.php
on line 17

I can telnet to the host and with the same username and password access the
database tables etc.  What gives?  I'm using
4.0.6 of PHP and apache under Redhat Linux 7.2.  Mysql is working fine from
command line and remote via odbc?

Also tryed mysql_connect with same problem.
