Xampp Mysql Localhost

Posted on by admin

Here, localhost.com is the custom domain and it could be anything. Now if you are not using XAMPP, and doing it for other backend technologies like Node.js, Django, etc. Just add that line in the host file and you are done. Just visit your domain and port, in this case, it is mydomain.com or mydomain.com:3000. But to operate on localhost or for storing data first we have to start Apache and MySQL from XAMPP control panel. Let for example, database name is server, table name is userinfo having column name as ID, First Name, Username and Password and we have to fetch the data stored there. So, below is the PHP program whose task is to fetch data.

So I followed the PHP Track, in Build a Simple PHP Application Course, I installed XAMPP; then in Database Foundations I installed the MySQL packages with windows installer. After I completed this course, I found that I can't connect to localhost or, the site says*(111) Connection refused

The remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again*;

Then I uninstalled MySQL Packages, failed to connection again, then I uninstalled and reinstalled xammp, still doesn't work.

Localhost Directory Xampp

I googled 'xampp localhost connection refused' and seems no answer suit my problem, what should I do to solve the problem?

Could be a number of Windows issues. Hard to tell without looking at your configuration. Try downloading and using WAMP instead. I use WAMP on one of my computers because it had issues with XAMPP.

Problem solved.When I installed WAMP, It says that i don't have msvcr110.ddl.Seems I somehow lost this library file, so I googled and installed 'Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4',Now Xampp work.

Were you able to connect to localhost prior to installing MySQL? Confirm that Apache is actually running; programs such as Skype, and some others, use the same port as Apache, which prevent the service from running.

I was having the same issue, getting the '... Connection refused' error message. When I checked the XAMPP status page, MySQL database was deactivated! So I uninstalled XAMPP, disabled internet access, disabled my antivirus program and Tonido Network, then reinstalled XAMPP and checked the status page; MySQL database was activated! I then created a database, created a folder in htdocs and was successfully able to install my Joomla! CMS.


Moral: it might be a good idea to ensure everything that's network dependent is disabled prior to installing XAMPP and anything associated.
