Check your username for MySQL; you may need to specify a hostname with it
(e.g., root at machine or root at localhost rather than just root).

I ran into exactly this same problem, but I'm having trouble remembering
exactly what fixed it...I do recall that it wasn't permissions and it wasn't
a problem with mySQL.  It had something to do with the login process.

Yes MYSql is running. I tried to figure out the problem by having a look
into the php scripts and i think that the command"mysql_pconnect()" is
unable to make a connection with the server. The error messages i get point
to the this location in the php program.

What should be the sequence in which the mysql setup should be run? My
Apache is php enabled, Horde seems to be working fine, Imp is working fine
but the only problem seems to be with the mysql setup.

What could be wrong? And what shoul be the point at which i should focus

ps ax | grep mysqld
