Thanks for the reply everyone. It is, for some weird reason, a MySQL problem. The root password is not what I set it to... or, I set it to something by mistake. Even though I was logged in as root at one point, I can't anymore. Very frustrating. :(
So, I'll have to sort out this problem before continuing w/ the Perl side.
