NEWBIE. MySQL error. Please help!


Recommended Posts



I have recently installed Uniserver on Windows XP Professional. In Server Security, the only error I have is:


MySQL Server

If the password is still set to root, then you probably need to change this by clicking the UNSECURE link.



When I change the MySQL password it comes up with the following error: Error connecting to mysql. I have researched various threads but have hit a brick wall. I am a complete newbie (I have been advised by a friend I need to run a local server as I will be using Joomla). Any advice will be greatly appreciated as I am truly at a loss.


Thank you,

In additon, when I run phpMyAdmin, I get the following error:


Welcome to phpMyAdmin



MySQL said:


#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)


Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.


Thank you,
