I missed a payment for my server and hey suspended my account for a day or so. When they brought the server back up all my data was in tact but for some reason Tomcat can't make a JDBC connection to my MySql server. They both run on the same machine and hence I have a bind address of 127.0.0.1.
It's strange because I have reset the machine of my own accord before without issue but clearly something has been reset in the downtime.
I followed this guide (Just the bits which don't concern S3, I am not on Amazon infrastructure) originally and everything worked as expected.
I'm very new to being a SysAdmin and I'm not sure what to try, how would you go about diagnosing this issue? The stack trace I get is as follows;

I get this error for a number of 'beans'.
If I type mysql at my command prompt then I can easily login with the same credentials as my grails app which uses GORM and Hibernate to persist objects to the DB.
I might not have given enough info to start with but I'm really interested to learn and will certainly provide it if asked, I just really don't know where to start on this one.
UPDATE: I can connect to mysql by running the binary at the command line. I also ran mysql over tcp and couldn't connect, does this spread any light on the issue?
root@88:~# mysql -u grails --protocol=tcp -p Enter password: ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (110)
I have bind-address as 127.0.0.1 as previously discussed so maybe it's not a surprise this doesn't work. Is there anything I need to check in my hosts file?
