Sowy!!! it is a question about windows 2003 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Elloo,

    Many sowy in advance for posting it on windows 2008 server forum. I have not found a forum for windows 2003 server.

    I am in a bit of a pickel, I am trying to install MySQL on server and it is giving me an error message during installation which is:

    Error 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'host_name' (111)

    Far as I understand this error occures when MySQL server is not started and MySQL server needs port 3306 opened to work.

    I have had a look at the firewall and have created an exception to allow access to this port. However, it has not worked.

    Further more, I have found that it can be security policies implemented for web server which can be blocking the ports. I have had a look at local security policy and I have found that there are scurity policies implemented on server. I have switched them off. However, port has not opended up.

    I know that port is not open because I am using Microsoft Port Query software. This software tells me that port is not listening.

    Can some body help me to open this port?

    If you can help, I am going to buy a pint of beer!!! :-)

    Many thanks.
