I keep getting this error message each time i connect to mysql. I am hosting on a dedicated server.

Also i have other websites which connect to the same mysql remotely. the same error message is encounted each time any of these websites tries to connect to the website.

I really need some expertise on this issue as this is driving away a lot of traffic from my website. thanks.

I have checked the connection scripts and its correct, as i have up tested with other mysql's.

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11) in /home/madeina2/public_html/connection.php on line 13

Warning: mysql_select_db() expects parameter 2 to be resource, boolean given in /home/madeina2/public_html/connection.php on line 14

Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11) in /home/madeina2/public_html/index.php on line 57

Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: A link to the server could not be established in /home/madeina2/public_html/index.php on line 57 ERROR: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11)

i checked and the connection script is correct. below is the script i use for connecting to mysql

$hostname = "localhost";
$db_user = "trilionit";
$db_password = "123456";
$db_table = "madein_afrika";
$db = mysql_connect($hostname,$db_user,$db_password);
mysql_select_db($db_table,$db);


is there a problem that im not seeing?
