[resolved] Windows Server 2008 - Error establishing a database connection (2 posts)

    I installed version 3.1.2 onto my webserver which is Windows Server 2008 64-bit by using the web platform installer.
    The Mysql database is on a remote server, also a Windows Server 2008 64-bit and port 3306 is open on the db server. That port is not open on the web server and I don't think it needs to be since the http traffic goes out over port 80.
    The database that the installer created is empty..no tables. I made sure that the username and password are correct for the user and that this user has been assigned all privileges.

    I've also verified that MySQL is ruunning as a service in Windows.

    Any ideas on what may be creating the disconnect?

    The user needed to have access to the mysql database in addition to the db that was created by the installer. all is well.
