Default unable to connect PHP with Mysql

I am new to PHP. I am trying to connect mysql with PHP with
mysql_connect but i m getting
"A link to the server could not be established"
I have used ODBC 3.51 driver for odbc and made connections with odbc with odbc_connect
but i don't know how to connect it with mysql_connect and fire mysql_-----queries.
Is there any specific driver for tht?

Know first the version of mysql you are connecting.
Also, you need to download from MySql the connector MyODBC
(it believe it is version 3.51).
If you are using current version 5.0 of MySQL
syntax/ mysql database functions is different from
prior version 4.1. ver. 5 uses mysqli (This is mysql improved).
And it works with PHP version 5.0 as well.
Hope this helps,
