Error connecting: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

Fixed, I’m an idiot.

You say the mysql host dosen’t allow remote connections, if it is a remote connection you shouldn’t be trying to make a local connection, thus using localhost would be causing the issue. Try using the IP instead.

Well, I was using the IP, the weird part is that it thinks I am using local for some reason.

I’ve decided on hosting my own MySQL from my own box now, and now it’s giving me a new error:

Error connecting: Access denied for user ‘ODBC’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)

My current login information:

force mysql_characters_table = characters;
force mysql_players_table = players;
force mysql_username = root;
force mysql_password = ************;
force mysql_database = esoteric_roleplay;
force mysql_host = localhost;

my mind is full of fuck

[lua]
force mysql_characters_table = characters;
force mysql_players_table = players;
force mysql_username = root;
force mysql_password = ************;
force mysql_database = esoteric_roleplay;
force mysql_host = localhost;
[/lua]

Is this the lua code you are using?

That is the mysql.cfg file, and that is what I currently have set.

Did you plug in the right mysql information … ?

Yes, I did.
