in reply to Canot connect to the remote mysql server through those lines

Well, the first thing I would do is see if I can connect to the database from the commandline.You know:
mysql -u root -p
Since one of the databases in on your local machine, you should have no problem. If you cannot connect that way, then it is a MySQL issue. If you can connect that way, then its an error in the script. If it is an error in the script, then I would strip it down to the absolute essentials of something like this:
#!/usr/bin/perl use DBI; use strict; my $dbh; my $db='survey'; my $host='localhost'; my $user='root'; my $pw='whatever'; $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$db", $user, $pw) or die "Database conn +ection not made: $DBI::errstr"; print "Woo Hoo! I connected!\n"; exit;
If that works, then I would start rebuilding the cgi script from that point.

All that being said, my guess is that it is a problem with the script since it is unlikely that both MySQL servers you are trying to reach have problems.

By the way Nik, you really need to develop some basic troubleshooting skills.

just my 2 cents,

    In your code yous et the connection vars but never in the connection statement you specify the host.

    I manages to make it work on localhost by turning this:

    ? DBI->connect('DBI:mysql:e_shop@localhost', 'root', 'supersecret', {R +aiseError=>1})
    to that
    ? DBI->connect('DBI:mysql:e_shop', 'root', 'supersecret', {RaiseError= +>1})
    As you can see i just removed 'localhost' and it works! Is this once again one damn windows error?!

    On the remote server though i still get this error:

    DBI connect('e_shop','root',...) failed: Can't connect to local MySQL +server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) at /home/www/ line 20
    Remote servr error is still a mystery i guess....
