Can't connect to local MySQL question

Hi,

I've been writing software on the mac since 1987, but am brand new at
unix/php/mysql, and that's where I'm headed so I'm reading everything I can
get my hands on, but like anything else there's going to be a learning
curve, that having been said...

I followed the install instructions at http://entropy.ch , and was able to
get mySql & php installed on my G4 -> (OSX 10.2.6) last night. I downloaded
Navicat and setup a password for the mysql user. I created a connection
called myDatabase_connection to a database called myDatabase. I was able to
get everything running OK.

Today when I restarted the machine, I tried to launch the php program that I
was running last night, and kept getting an error 2002 below.

Could someone take a look at the syntax below and see if you could spot what
I am doing wrong?

Thank you very much...

Bill Hernandez
