Mysql On Bitdefender Total Security 2012

4 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm trying to run a test mysql server (mysql-5.5.22) but I keep geting this error:

The security settings could not be applied to the database because the connection has failed with the following error.

Error Nr. 2003

Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

If a personal firewall is running on your machine, please make sure you have opened the TCP port 3306 for connections. Otherwise no client application can connect to the server. After you have opened the port please press [Retry] to apply the security settings.

If you are re-installing after you just uninstalled the MySQL server please note that the data directory was not removed automatically. Therefore the old password from your last installation is still needed to connect to the server. In this case please select skip now and re-run the Configuration Wizard from the start menu.

I've set paranoid mode on firewall, but no popup displays :wacko: :wacko: .

I've add mysqld.exe and mysql.exe in app rules, but is not working.

Any tips?

Was this solved?

When I try to connect to MySQL server I get the message:

"Can't connect to MySQL Server on 'localhost' (10061)

No connection could ve made because the target machine actively refused it"

I tried adding an application rule but am not sure if I have done this correctly.
