I am using xampp 1.7.1 on a Windows Server 2003 machine
I am trying to the MySql port from 3306 to 2215. I am in the mysql bin folder. I have edited the my.ini file and changed the port parameters from 3306 to 2215.
I have restarted the server.
Yet, the port change does not seem to get in effect. I am trying to connect using localhost. There is no firewall.
I can connect via 3306 and unable to connect through 2215.
Here is my "my.ini" file
# Example MySQL config file for small systems.
# This is for a system with little memory (<= 64M) where MySQL is only used
# from time to time and it's important that the mysqld daemon
# doesn't use much resources.
# You can copy this file to
# C:/Program Files/xampp/mysql/bin/my.cnf to set global options,
# mysql-data-dir/my.cnf to set server-specific options (in this
# installation this directory is C:/Program Files/xampp/mysql/data) or
# ~/.my.cnf to set user-specific options.
# In this file, you can use all long options that a program supports.
# If you want to know which options a program supports, run the program
# with the "--help" option.
# The following options will be passed to all MySQL clients
# password = your_password
port = 2215
socket = "C:/Program Files/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock"
# Here follows entries for some specific programs
# The MySQL server
socket= "C:/Program Files/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock"
