Difficulty Connecting PHP 5.1.2 and MySQL 5.0.18

Recommended Posts

From mysqld.log:

060327 22:40:59 mysqld started
060327 22:40:59 InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 43655
060327 22:40:59 [Note] /usr/libexec/mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '5.0.18' socket: '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' port: 3306 Source distribution

From phpinfo ( at URL REMOVED )

MysqlI Support enabled
Client API version 5.0.18
MYSQLI_SOCKET /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

MySQL Support enabled

Further details at the link above. Port is 3306.

Socket is present:
srwxrwxrwx 1 mysql mysql 0 Mar 27 22:40 mysql.sock

I can log directly into mysql using the command line:

[root@server mysql]# mysql -u wordpress -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 8 to server version: 5.0.18

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.


For the life of me I simply cannot get these two to talk to each other. I've been trying for something like 15 hours, scouring documentation and searching the web, and I have come up empty.

Can anybody suggest anything at all? PHP works, MySQL works... they just won't work together.

I've also overridden the default_socket and default_port settings in /etc/php.ini to no avail.
