Can't help beyond that as I've never tried to create/run a php script on
my test server. However, perhaps installing:

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-admin phpmyadmin

will help if you've not done this already. Then from a browser (can be
from a remote if you sub 'localhost' with <ipaddress>):


from there you can use phpmyadmin to check?
Note: on my basic test 8.04 lamp system that I just brought up I've not
configured any users yet, so username is still 'root'. So if you have
issues logging in, try that as the default.
