Just a general comment here. When upgrading to a new version of webwork it's worth checking to see what has changed in global.conf, as new things seem to be added or changed with every new version.
I think the easiest way to do this is to run the command
cvs diff -r rel-2-4-patches global.conf.dist
Gavin is correct that Webwork is not getting the correct value for the username and password. You can see this in the error message. The syntax is DBI::Connect($database,$username,\$password) . Since the second argument in your error message is '', it means that Webwork is sending a blank username, so it defaults to the username running the process, which is usually apache. You can also tell that it is not sending a password since it says "using password: NO". Adding the %sqlParams hash as Gavin suggests should fix this.
