im new to sql but long story short.
just installed mysql server 5.5 and started the configuration and it failed to apply the security settings with error message 2003, cant connect to server on local host. so i cant finnish the installation and canot run mysql.exe. it just beeps at me.
WHAT I HAVE TRIED:
i have turnd of firewalls, virus proggys and anything else i could think of with no joy
i have looked at other posts regarding this error but they all appere to be problems regarding code on already installed coppies of mysql.
i checked to see if the service is running. which it does appere to be.
i have noticed that i have numerous copies of microsoft sql server. 2005. 2008 and various subsidiary progs installed. could they be interfearing. i dont know what installed them or weather i should remove them or not.
can any one help me get this installed?
