Everything was working perfectly, but now
The error message suggest that is is trying to connect to "localhost"it links through to the internet
MySQL does not need to connect to "the internet" in order to be used - what exactly do you do that allows MySQL to connect (and die).From the xampp control panel apache will run and so will mysql but if you want to use mysql it needs to connect to the internet. On allowing this to happen mysql is switched off.
Are you using Windows firewall and do you have MySQL and port 3306 listed as exceptions? (Or other firewall - open port 3306)It should use port 3306 but it would appear that this port might be blocked.
