PHP and mysqli_connect()

Here is a tip that may save a couple of hours: If you want to connect to a different MySQL’s port other than default 3306, do not use “localhost” as $host because mysqli_connect and deprecated mysql_connect will both ignore port argument. 

Use instead “127.0.0.1”.

Lame but useful.
