RightScale provides LAMP-style ServerTemplates with MySQL's networking disabled for efficiency and security purposes. Although it can present a problem for some users, you can easily change it in the master configuration file for MySQL.
In the file
/etc/my.cnf, under the section
[mysqld], comment out the option
'skip-networking'. Issue a
'service mysqld restart' and the problem will be solved.
