Thanks moritz.

I am reading up on selinux now which seems to be enabled on my system, and might be a possible cause. The log file at /var/log/audit/audit.log shows the following entry among other

type=AVC msg=audit(1347964714.394:62458): avc:  denied  { name_connect } for  pid=14917 comm="my_script.cgi" dest=3306 scontext=root:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:mysqld_port_t:s0 tclass=tcp_socket

    Fixed it! It was indeed a selinux issue, which by default was preventing httpd to establish network connections.

    Had to run the following command to allow it to do so

    setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect=1

    Once again, thanks a lot moritz. I thought it might have to do with security settings, just didn't know where to look!
