Your script being a client program implies that you have to tell it which
host it should be looking for a mysql server on. In other words, if your
server is not running on the same host as your program (and even then), you
MUST enter a host name or ip address.

It is not necessary to run mysql as a service, however it is necessary to
run it somehow, that being as a service or standalone application. The
command line client is still a client, thus it depends on the mysql server
being accessible.
