Trying to connect to MySQL on localhost as root...
MySQL error 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
I can log into mySql with the same parameters using MySql Administrator
(localhost). What might MediaWiki be doing differently?
Thanks in advance for any tips.
This just in: It seems that there is a networking difference between the
environment where the config worked and the one where it did not. It has
something to do with DNS setup confusing mySql. I found a post elsewhere that
said to add the "enable-named-pipe" option to mySql's my.ini (see below) and
then use "." instead of "localhost" to force it to use named pipes. It
It's a trick to keep in mind in case you ever run up against something like
that. (Plus I was relieved that I had not done something stupid...)
