I've set up a virtual host on my local machine (windows xp with xampp installed), have installed zend there and am now trying to connect to the MySQLdatabase. I get the following error message:
Message: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to MySQL server on ''myhost.com'' (10060)
All the tips I've found via google haven't helped. I use kaspersky antivirus and have added port 3306 to the allowed list for MySQL and Apache. I've also pinged myhost.com:3306 and get a response (with ip address 220.127.116.11), though localhost:3306 and 127.0.0.1:3306 aren't found. I've checked that other apps can still access MySQL if the virtual host is pointed at them instead and my non zend apps do work.
I guess I have to do something further to the port, or maybe force the app to use a different port, but am not sure how to do either.
Any help appreciated.
