during installation I get the error message 'error 2003 (HY000) cant connect to MySQL server on localhost 10013
the installation proceeds and the control panel launches showing all servers running.
click go to application and the opening page looks ok. Click on launch wordpress and get HTTP 500 error.
trying to log in to phpmyAdmin and the page does not accept password with the error message:
get # 2002 an attempt has been made to assess a socket the server is not responding ( or the local server's socket is not correctly configured)
also error message:
MysQLi_real_connect():(HY000/2002): An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.
Have got the same response with the last edition and the current one downloaded today.
I have tried re installing 5 times with and without my firewall and antivirus active all with same result
Suspect problems with the MYSQL server configuration but cannot find how to repair it. Guidance please.
