    MySQL connection timing out

    Sky Chief

      New to PHP and admittantly going about this all wrong. I let my

      son set up my PHP and he just did it.


      I am using DW CS5 and here the following settings:


      I am able to serve pages on live view locally and can use the URL: http://localhost:999/index.php to serve a page

      I set up the database and created the username and password.


      I was getting a message: lost connection to mysql server at "initial communication packet" error 2 using MYSQL Workbench 5.1


      Any help would be appreciated, I have tried all manner of different settings attempting to get this to work.
