mysql connect failure

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have 2 scripts that both start with:
// Database Connection
include 'connect.php';

One of them is fine, but the other gives the error:

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket  
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)

Since the same file is being included both times, I can't see why it should  
fail in one case.

Any ideas anyone?

Two different scripts on one machine, or one script on two different
machines?  If it is the latter, then one machine isn't running MySQL

If the former, are these both running as CGI or within Apache?
