Connection Errors with MySQL 5, on Windows 2000 Server (2 posts)

    I am running as a stand alone server (windows 2000). All development will be done on this server. I can not seem to get the system up and running. I am getting connection errors. I have not been able to get this up and running for over 2 weeks now...

    I have even followed the online tutorial video step by step but all I get is the same Connection Error.

    I've tried everything in the config file, setting up user and database in the MySql database, even to the point of changing it to use root and still does not work. Am I missing something?

    Thanks
    JT

    I'd suggest, since your a beginner, that you use EasyPHP. It comes with MySQL, PHP, phpMyAdmin and the works. Install it and run it. Easy as that.
