SQL Error (2003): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

Hi all,

I have added my external IP address via cPanel in order to be able to access my online MySQL server and using HeidiSQL client I'm trying to connect to it but I'm getting this error:

SQL Error (2003): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

I'm using TCP IP to connect.

Any ideas anyone please?

Thanks

Did you check whether mysql service is running?

"Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost'" means you are trying to connect to a MySQL server on your local machine.  Check the connection parameters on your HeidiSQL client.

What do you mean "checked localhost to point to external host"?  Did you mean checked->changed?  Can you take a screen capture of your HeidiSQL configuration?
