Database connection error

Postby sebotage » 12. May 2008 18:38

Hi,
I've installed xampp using port 6060 as IIS is using 80. Apache and phpMyAdmin are started and function correctly. I have added a privilege and a database but when I try connect to the database using my pc name and port it doesn't connect or give me an error, it just tries to load endlessly.

Here is my test code.
<?
//connect
$localhost = "station:6060";
$username = "test";
$password = "test123";
$database = "testdb";

mysql_connect($localhost,$username,$password);
@mysql_select_db($database) or die("Unable to select database");

echo 'helloooo';
?>

Tnx,
sebotage

Code: Select all
$localhost = "[b]station:6060[/b]";

That must allways be "localhost".

Hi,
I have tried that with no luck. I have added a Privilege and created a database when adding the Privilege and my test page doesn't connect.

<?
//connect
$localhost = "localhost";
$username = "test";
$password = "test123";
$database = "testdb";

mysql_connect($localhost,$username,$password);
@mysql_select_db($database) or die("Unable to select database");

echo 'helloooo';
?>

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in C:\data\test\website\live\test.php on line 8
Unable to select database

How did you do that?

1...If you are running IIS there is a chance that port 3306 is being used by it...run a port check to confirm that. 2... if phpMyAdmin is running, open it and select status-- what does 'Show MySQL runtime information' show?

My experience is that ports 80/3306/443 all need to be changed if IIS is running concurrently.
