For some reason I can't establish a mysql connection using this code.
I'm getting the error load -Incorrect table name ''  in my browser.

What could be the reason?
<?PHP

$DATABASE_SERVER = ':/tmp/mysql.sock';
 

$client_flags = 128; 
 

$dblink = mysql_connect($DATABASE_SERVER, 'username', 'password', FALSE, $client_flags); 

mysql_select_db('usall', $dblink); 
 

$sql = "LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'data/$file' INTO TABLE `$table` FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' ENCLOSED BY '\"' ESCAPED BY '\\\\' LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n'(id,company,address,city,state,zip,route,altaddress,altcity,altstate,altzip,altroute,county,telephone,fax,web,lname,fname,title,gender,employees,employeerange,sales,salesrange,sic,category,alphascore,numericscore,squarefootage,pc,area)"; 
 

$result = mysql_query($sql, $dblink) or die("load -" . mysql_error()); 

echo "<h3>Import Completed!</h3><br>	\n"; 

?>

In my server error.log I'm seeing:

PHP Warning:  mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/htdocs/users/picksoft/picksoft/localheavyconstruction.com/import/importus.php on line 7

Probably because you need to replace 'username' and 'password' with the REAL username and password to your database.

This is just an example, of course I have replaced them on the server.
