[Resolved] Windows Server 2008 – Error establishing a database connection

  • 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.
