mysql connection issue

mysql connection issue

Error message is

"Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in D:\Hosting\3905780\html\Connections\localhost.php on line 9

Fatal error: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in D:\Hosting\3905780\html\Connections\localhost.php on line 9

I have tested and made the database (DB) connection with the localhost using dreamweaver, i.e. did not test connection with the host DB. What should I do to reconcile this?

You should contact the host to determine the correct mysql server name to use when creating a connection.

Can not connect craziness

I've had days and days of fun with this also.

What wants to be fixed is "localhost.php" hidden in the connections folder of your "store".

It wants to be something like this:

# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_localhost = "localhost";
$database_localhost = "store";
$username_localhost = "root";
$password_localhost = "root";
$localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

After beating my head against the wall trying to find what to do and not getting a straight answer here I went to the Adobe Forums and found the problem in just a few seconds.

No to just find where the MySQL database get hidden.
