My company has been having an issue with our MySQL server.

We have the latest version of php and mysql on our Webserver, FreeBSD unix server, but it seems like there is a small connection issue,

When I connection using the MySQL admin GUI it connects using a proxy, and when it connects using the web i believe it connects directly. I use 1 user account to try to connect both ways

example -user1 -password1 -user1 -password1

Basicly I want to be able to connect to MySQL using both, but it seems if one connects, the other wont. There are times when I can connect to both, but then after I test some php and go home for the night, I come back and its right back to one or the other not working.

Any ideas what may be causing this?
