Your id seems to be the one you use on your local machine. So you need to verify your mysql id and password.

Are you using this user for another website on the same server?
Does it work there?

Make sure your user is allowed to connect from "localhost".
Try doing something like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT host FROM mysql.user WHERE user = 'pds'
See if the returning list includes "localhost" or "%".
