In your phpinfo page, there search for mysql. If it isn't there, you don't
have mysql support. (There should be mention of it in the configure line,
as well as a whole section for it later.)

Other things to try include checking things like the database name, user
name, password, db server, etc. that it is trying to log into. (I assume
you can get into this database from the command line using the same
credentials that phpMyAdmin should be using.)
