Is MySQL running?
Check in the XAMPP Control Panel.
Have you allowed access for port 3306 in your firewall?
Check your firewall/ZoneAlarm/other security utility settings.
Your error seems to indicate that MySQL is being blocked and so can't be accessed.
There is a newer version of XAMPP Lite 1.7.7 that you may like to use instead of the 1.7.2 version or have you considered installing the full featured 1.7.7 version?
