Why does mysql_connect() keep causing Apache 2.2 to stop working?

I have recently installed MySQL on my laptop on which I am working on locally. I have php5 and MySQL Server 5.1. I am using Windows Vista SP2 with Apache 2.2.

When I try to run the function mysql_connect() the connection seems to wait for the localhost for a while (30+ seconds) before it eventually gives up and I get the error message: "Apache HTTP Server stopped working and was closed"
By diagnosing why the page didn't load through windows I get this report: " 'localhost' is not set up to establish a connection on port 'World Wide Web (HTTP)' with this computer'";
I have tested mysqld through the command prompt and know it is alive from the ping command.

Please help!

What PHP version are you using? I'm looking for information on this problem, though I'm not finding much.

It is Version 5.2.9-1 (according to phpinfo()).

Wow!! That worked! All I had to do was copy and paste "libmysql.dll" into the Apache bin folder and it seems to be fine. I'll let you know if I have any further problems with the installation.
Thank you! :)
