#51 can't connect to mySql


hey everybody :)

i've just installed this so as to learn php and mysql.
once installed, linking through from localhost to
phpMyAdmin produces nowt but the following:

Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't connect to
MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in
C:\apache\htdocs\phpmyadmin\lib.inc.php on line 255

I get the same thing when i run 'cmd' in dos mode.

i'm new to this sh#t so i'm completely foxed. does
anyone know what the problem might be?

    pack your pc in original box and dump it into skip. Let's
    face it you are too lazy to read documentation or do
    research on internet or too stupid? Why would you need mysql?

    After in your web go to http://localhost
