Connection problems
« on: November 17, 2017, 01:03:08 PM »
I have a test forum SMF 2.1 RC3 which give me the next error message :

Warning: mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): Kan geen verbinding maken omdat de doelcomputer de verbinding actief heeft geweigerd. in C:\xampp\htdocs\rc3\Sources\Subs-Db-mysql.php on line 77

translation: can't make a connection with the destiny computer, the connection was actively refused in C:\.................


This forum is running on a XAMPP local machine with PHP version 5.6.3 and MySQL 5.0.11

On this very same localhost (so, same mysql, same php and same firewall) I have a SMF forum version 2.0.13, this is working fine, so no error messages.

Somebody any idea how tot solve this errormessage ?

Correct port, correct user name, correct password?
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Is there a place to set the portnumber in SMF 2.1 RC3 ?
