( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??


I'm trying to connect to a MySQL database that is located on a server, but I think I am having problems with the connect statement. The program appears to hang (see output; I have to kill the process), so I turned on tracing. My code:

use strict; use warnings; use DBI; my $db = 'homo_sapiens_core_42_'; my $host = ''; my $user = 'xx'; my $pass = 'yy'; DBI->trace(1); print "HERE\n"; my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$db;host=$host", $user, $pass, { RaiseError => 1 } ) or die ( "Couldn't connect to database: " . DBI->errstr ); print "DONE\n";
The output:
DBI 1.54-ithread default trace level set to 0x0/1 (pid 25943) at q line 23 HERE -> DBI->connect(DBI:mysql:homo_sapiens_core_42_;host= +, xx, ****, HASH(0x9fc8c28)) -> DBI->install_driver(mysql) for linux perl=5.008005 pid=25943 ru +id=56 euid=56 install_driver: DBD::mysql version 4.004 loaded from /usr/lib/p +erl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-m ulti/DBD/ <- install_driver= DBI::dr=HASH(0xa063d18) !! warn: 0 CLEARED by call to connect method

I looked through the DBI documentation and several Tutorials (DBI recipes, The fine art of database programming, Reading from a database, and Tricks with DBI), but I couldn't find anything that seemed to address this issue. I also tried several google searches.

I can connect to the database via the command line, so I don't think it is a problem with the server or the database itself.

$ /usr/local/mysql-standard-5.0.27-linux-i686-glibc23/bin/mysql -u xx +-h HOST -p Enter password: Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MySQL connection id is 3100 to server version: 5.0.27-standard Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer. mysql> mysql> use homo_sapiens_core_42_ Reading table information for completion of table and column names You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A Database changed [deleted test select query] SELECT query successful.

Your wisdom and insights are appreciated. Thanks.
