2003 Error cannot connect to MySQL on Win XP Home
Posted by Chris_Isaac (Chris Isaac), 15 January 2006Hi
I've installed MySQL in my Win XP Home ed machine, If I use the MySQL Command line client I can access Mysql ok, but I keep getting the above error if I try to connect from the command line window that I've opened. Have tried altering my security setting but no joy.
This is the command I've tried:
It then asks me for a password, then comes up with the error.
Myqsl is refinately running, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Posted by Chris_Isaac (Chris Isaac), 15 January 2006Ok... Don't you just hate it when you ask a question, then have a brain wave.....
I've cured the problem.... My fault, when I originally run the MySQL Server Config Wizard I had not selected the Include Bin directory option.

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 15 January 2006Hey, Chris ... glad it's sorted and I expect people to carry on "worrying" the problem what they've posted it.
What has got me really p***ed off in the past is when someone (NOT you) has posted a problem, then fixed it within a few minutes but left the question hanging around for several days and reacts with surprise when someone answers
