update-db.pl and make_system.pl unable to find database

I'm still having problems connecting LJ to mysql :/ Any input is appreciated. I'd link to it, but I think I had it friend restricted (d'oh!) so no one could see it. Well..

I tried to run the upgrade the update-db.pl command and got the following:

:/home/lj# bin/upgrading/update-db.pl --runsql --populate
Can't connect to the database (clust#0), so I can't update it.

I /was/ able to run the mysql -uroot commands and create the database, grant access and etc. Plus the system shows mysql processes running and if I connect to it manually I get a good status output (as follows)

mysql> status

here's my config from the ljconfig.pl
'master' => { # master must be named 'master'
'host' => "localhost",
'port' => 3306,
'user' => 'sjmaster',
'pass' => '*********',
'role' => {
'cluster1' => 1,
# example of a TCP-based DB connection
#'somehostname' => {
# 'host' => "somehost",
# 'port' => 1234,
# 'user' => 'username',
# 'pass' => 'password',
# example of a UNIX domain-socket DB connection
#'otherhost' => {
# 'sock' => "$LJ::HOME/var/mysqld.sock",
# 'user' => 'username',
# 'pass' => 'password',

# clusters? (for each @CLUSTERS, need a 'cluster$i' role above)
@CLUSTERS = qw(1);
$ALLOW_CLUSTER_SELECT = 0; # for testing; you don't want this on.

I tried creating the system user, and this is what happened:

:/home/lj# bin/upgrading/make_system.pl

This tool will create your LiveJournal 'system' account and set its password. Or, if you already have a system user, it'll change its password to whatever you specify.

Enter password for the 'system' account: ********

Creating system account...
