That message means that no MySQL process is running. mysql.sock is the default socket file. If it was a password problem, your message would be a permission denied type. Check to make sure your MySQL instance is running. If your on linux go to /var/run/ and see if mysql.sock is there. If it is then its running, it not its not.
