  • currently mysql is running on port 3307 if that matters.

    As you’re not using the default MySQL port 3306, you need to specify your custom port in the database host: ie localhost:3307.

    This is the same for HTTP/S: if you’re not running your web server on the default ports 80/443, you need to specify the custom port in the URL: eg http://localhost:8080.
