Still not working
Assuming that you have followed the default install, those settings are likely to be:
Stored Connection: localhost
Server Host: localhost
Password: (leave blank)
You may have to enable access to port 3306 (probably) in your firewall software.
Thanks, I tried that but I get an error message saying
MySQL error number 1045
Access denied for root@localhost [using password NO]
I also tried after resetting the firewall, again after switching it off, again with different passwords but no luck.
Any ideas welcome.
