How are you telling Drupal to connect? MySQL makes a difference between
"localhost" and "" (which is totally bogus). localhost means
"connection through the socket" and means "connection through
the network interface lo0".

Does the user you're connecting as have access to the drupal database?
Did you perform the grant  for <username>@localhost or
<username>@  This should match the connection method.

 experience much like composing poetry or music."
