Jordan Magnuson Posted January 23, 2010 Report Share Posted January 23, 2010 I'm quite excited to start using Uniform Server after what I've heard involving speed improvements with drupal (over XAMPP and WAMP). Unfortunately I've been trying to get it to work for the last couple of hours without success. I've narrowed the problem down to something having to do with mysql: 1.When I try to change the mysql root password from Apanel, I get "waiting for localhost" for a period of time, and then the webpage reloads with "Error Connecting to mysql." 2. When I try to set up a drupal installation, I get this message after entering the mysql database information (using username root, password root, on a database I just created in phpmyadmin):"Failed to connect to your MySQL database server. Mysql reports the following message: 'A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time." 3. I AM able to access phpmyadmin, and create new db's and users. Other things to note:*I'm using Windows 7.*Started Apache and mysql as programs, not services. *Server Status says everything's okay.*I CAN'T install Apache and mysql as services: when I try, Server Status tells me that they are not running and that port situation is "Unknown!" Even though task manager shows the services as having started correctly. I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem.*Until today have been using XAMPP, which works fine (though localhost a bit slow). Any help with this would be much appreciated! Thanks!
