Hey folks, need some help.
When I try to access phpMyAdmin, I get the following error:
#2002 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
The server is not responding (or the local server's socket is not correctly configured).
I've been searching online with no luck.
I tried modifying my.ini, removing the # from the bind-address="127.0.0.1" line. That didn't help.
MySQL is green in the XAMPP Control Panel. Tried stopping and starting the service. No luck.
From what I'm reading it sounds like it may be a port issue? But can't figure out how to troubleshoot. My Norton is expired. I uninstalled Skype just in case. Not sure what to try.
I used to code in ASP & SQL so my http://localhost points there. Per the XAMPP install guide, I have to access it via http://localhost:1234/xampp/ which works fine. PHP is green everywhere.
If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it. A week of searching and trying things and absolutely no luck.
