Get "Could not connect to mysql" with move-blogs.php for multi-db setup

After following the instructions for multi-db setup, I try and go to the move-blogs.php and get the following error: "Could not connect to mysql"

Does anyone know how to fix?

    Here is the move-blogs.php file:

    Plugin Name: Multi-DB (Conversion Tool)

    Author: Ron Dillehay - FanMail to (no tech support please) - Modified slightly by Andrew Billits (Incsub)
    Version: 2.9.2
    Author URI:
    This script is to move blogs from a wordpress mu single database setup, to a wordpress mu multiple database setup using an MD5 hash to establish blog routing
    Use this script at your own risk. My test setup uses php 5, mysql 5, and wordpress mu 1.2.5a


    ///DB Settings
    $dbname = "wordpress_b"; //This is your current database
    $blog_table_prefix = 'wp_'; //Prefix of your wpmu blog tables, most likely this won't need to be changed
    $newdb_prefix = 'wordpress_b_'; //This is the prefix of the db's you're moving your tables into - we assume they are all the same, if not, you're in trouble

    //We need info to connect to the databases
    $dbhost = 'localhost';
    $dbuname = 'admin';
    $dbpass = 'pwd';

    //How many db's are you moving into (16, 256, or 4096)?
    $db_scaling = '4096';
