Did you try to replace localhost with

edit (added question): Is the error really 'Unknown MYSQL server host ' localhost' <11004>', as in '<space>localhost? Could it be your code is not actually what you pasted, and the is a space before $hostname?

    the code is identical, i.e. NO space before 'localhost' tried with get failed: access denied for user 'test_user'@'localhost' I am doing this and still doesn't work
    use test; # create table (name char(20)); CREATE USER 'test_user'@'localhost'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'test_user'@'localhost'; select * from ttt;
    seems like the 'user' does not have access privileges. Any ideas?
      "...Any ideas?"

      Not really. Did you try SHOW GRANTS FOR 'test_user'@'localhost'; (..assuming you can connect via mysql client)? I know, i guess...but don't we do that every day?
