Quick question: are you trying to access MySQL on a TCP or local Unix
socket?  If it is through a Unix socket, then the MySQL socket has
to exist within the jail filesystem root.  By default, the MySQL
server opens a Unix socket under either /tmp or /var/run, which cannot
be seen by any jail on the system.
