[HCoop-Help] MySQL/PHP lost ability to connect in the last 24 hours

I've made no changes to my portfolio in the last 24 hours, but PHP no
longer connects to MySQL.

I can connect to MySQL from the command line:

caden at mire:~/caden_htdocs$ mysql -hmysql -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 2956114

However, when I connect within a PHP page I get:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Unknown MySQL
server host 'mysql' (2) in
on line 11

Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: Can't connect to local
MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in
on line 37

Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: A link to the server
could not be established in
on line 37

Does anyone have any suggestions?  Has anything related on the server
changed?  Environment variables, network configuration related to
mysql?  My whole portfolio site is database-driven so I'd be grateful
for any tips.
