MySQL connection error
Tonight when I tried to run the MySQL Query Browser on Windows I got the following error message:
MySql Error Number 2003, can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost'
When I pinged the server as suggested by the dialog box, everything looked alright but still I could not connect to
MySQL. I then checked to see if the MySQL service was running in the control panel's Administrative Tools/Services section. For some reason the MySQL service had stopped running and on manually re-starting the service I managed to once again connect to MySQL as normal.
Yoki, I hope that you managed to go round the error as well. As I said mine was caused by stopped MySQL service but I wonder whether there are other situations that cause the error to occur.
I also got that error and went to control panel/administrative tools/services, but mysql was not even listed there. Any ideas why?
