I'm a begginer and am taking a tutorial on it. I just started the MySQL connect. Here's my code:

mysql_connect("localhost", "admin", "1admin") or die(mysql_error());
echo "Connected to MySQL<br/>";

I test it and get this-

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (46)

I have no Idea what this means?

It means you need to consult [a href=\"http://www.mysql.com/doc/C/a/Can_not_connect_to_server.html\" target=\"_blank\"]this refman page[/a] to see which one of the many known problems you've encountered.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

Before executing your php script, make sure you're able to get into the mysql prompt from the terminal.
Because you have a problem with mysql connection.
Can you tell me how you connect to the mysql ?
