error #2003 server not responding

Installed zend core bundle that included mysql with phpmyadmin. All went well and functions on one server, installed on a second server but phpmyadmin returns error #2003 server not responding. The mysql service shows started and so does zend core. Tried all of the usual but it appears to be something blocking the server access on the computer that doesnt allow phpmyadmin access since one of the servers works fine.
Anyone, please give us an assist on this as we are in a crunch to get multiple development servers running for php/mysql projects.

"Tried all of the usual"?

What is 'the usual' so we don't waste time posting something you've already tried?

checked the host address (ip of machine), check the pwd, set bind-address=  to localhost ip, checked my.ini, php.ini, httpd.conf, also checked netstat  to see if 3306 was listening and ping checked localhost ip. I can go to localhost with browser and the see the default index in the htdocs directory but I cannot use the phpmyadmin tool to work with any database. As stated in last post we have another server we set up the same way and it worked fine (both are xp pro dell servers and both have the same zend core bundle installed)

Can you connect with php?


<?php
 
$hostname = "localhost";
$username = "user";
$password = "password";
$db_conn = mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
 
if($db_conn) echo 'Connected to MySQL';
 
?>

thanks to all but I found the problem. It is one for the books. The new server that would not access phpmyadmin using localhost had a net computer name with a number as the last character i.e sysacd3, for some reason phpmyadmin did not like the root@computername with the number in  the name. I changed the computername to something like sysacd-3 and then phpmyadmin worked when accessed with localhost.
Concerning experts exchange, I do like this method of getting answers and even though it didnt work out this time I am sure I will use it again in the future. Thanks to v2media for your prompt response to my initial question.

That kind of info is important when posting the initial question; server os & version, mysql version, php version and history of troubleshooting.  I agree it's a good resource. 98% of cases when I'm researching a problem, there's an EE result or 3 in the search results. Very handy to be able to see the experts' posts in that situation.
