Stating the obvious, but can you connect to mysql from the command line. Type mysql and you should see a prompt like this (after typing in password etc):

I am having a similar problem with MYSQL and the BI 1.7 Installer,

and yes mysql is running and I can connect to it from the terminal and from MYSQL admin just fine. Any ideas?

Not sure, but mysql permissions sometimes seems a bit finicky, So you might want to grant permissions to the user on both AND localhost.
