Stuck at connecting to MySQL

I am working on getting my own LiveJournal installed. I have a fresh Debian 3.1 box, and I got all the packages I need finally. (I think). I used the snapshot dated 20030825.

I got stuck dead in the water at this step:

bin/upgrading/ --runsql --populate

Can't connect to the database (clust#0), so I can't update it.

I know MySQL is running and I can get status from it from mysql-admin tool. I think I have set up all the permissions etc. I've tried both port and socket method, with same result. I also tried for the hostname and it did not fix it.

I see others have had this problem and I did not see a resolution. Any advice? Please help!
