View Full Version : error starting a server

12-17-2005, 10:51 PM
Im trying to run a server on windows 2000 with phpdev. I have it set up completely, and have made my router forward the port.

This is the link:

and the permissions are set to allow people to view it, so im not sure what is wrong.

Does anyone have any ideas.

*note*its on port 8000 because cox blocks port 80

I just went to the link and it loads in Firefox, but it's getting MySQL errors. Do you have MySQL running on the server?

This is the error I see:

Warning: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in c:\phpdev\www\index.php on line 70

Do you have localhost in your hosts file?
