Broken In
The connection to database is via TCP/IP protocol. If this type of error occurs then either server is not installed or started properly. If you are using SP2 on windows XP then firewall must have blocked this port and therefore the client is not able to connect to server.

In my opinion, the best way to solve this is by uninstalling mysql and then install it again. Moreover try using Mysql Administrator and Mysql Query Browser for client operation (all these can be found on mysql site.)

Some Info for Mysql database :-

1. Mysql automatically open TCP port 3306 for clients. This is default and must not be changed while installation.
2. Use root accout for connecting to server. You may password protect root account while running installation.
3. The account info required to connect to Mysql server via mysql administrator or mysql query browser is as -

Server Host : localhost or 127.0.0.1
username : root
password : nil or whatever you have specified for root

Hope this might help u out. :wink:
