[REBOL] -cannot connect to localhost-(mysql protocol)

From: tim-johnsons:web at: 17-Jan-2010 18:03

Hi ally you mysql-protocol users: Since these emails are archived, I'll share my problem and the solution. I recently installed slackware linux and my reliable mysql protocol could not connect. With the error message: cannot connect to localhost It has been years since I used slackware. I noted some references to this problem by googling Where dockimbel assesses the problem correctly. That is, mysql is not set to take TCP/IP connections. Solution: On slackware I edited /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld the following line SKIP="--skip-networking" to #SKIP="--skip-networking" Placing the comment marker at the beginning of the line to disable it. On ubuntu systems, /mnt/uroot/etc/mysql/my.cnf would be the file to edit, and windows should have a similar mysql config file. Cheers -- Tim
