Hmm... can you connect to the mysql server in any other of your scripts, because that's quite obviously the problem here.

Hi tripat,
Is the server your running the php script on the same server thats running the MySQL?

If yes try using $hostname = "localhost";

Also I'm not sure but I think that you should have something like:

$dbId = mysql_connect(your stuff here);

so when you do your query you can pass it the database session Id example:

$result = mysql_query($query,$dbId);

Hope this is of some help.
