Are you starting mysqld with "--skip-networking"?
If so, then remove it for "localhost" access. LO Base uses localhost
to access mysqld and will give a failed to connect error if it can't
connect via localhost. MyAdmin does not use localhost to connect, so
it would work fine while Base will not.
No Gavin I am not!! MySQL starts automatically at Boot.
I see you created a user name 'lanw' in My Admin. That is a good
start. You also have to use My Admin to define what schema 'lanw' can
access. Then you need to define what privileges 'lanw' should have for
the databases in those schema.
I started MyAdmin and found that the user 'Ianw' was no longer there -
so I gave 'Any User' full privileges. This made no difference to my problem.
So then I went back to MyAdmin and created a New User 'Ianw' and give
him full privileges and selected all Schemas.
Back to Base - still get 'Communications Failure'. Tried again this time
selecting 'Password Needed' and this time it asked me for my Password
but after that came back with the 'Communications Failure'
Any more ideas (I don't have much hair left!!!)
