Try to create new connection with default parameters (host=127.0.0.1, user=root, password=<blank>, port=3306) and click "Save + Connect" button. If this doesn't work, report the exact error message Heidi gives you.

Chorlya, This is the error after I tried your suggestion:

Could not establish connection! details
SQL error: Can't connect to Mysql server on '127.0.0.1' (10061)

I think that means your MySQL server is not running, or it is listening on some non-standard port.

To check if your server is up and running, execute this command from windows command prompt:

telnet 127.0.0.1 3306



if you get "Could not open connection to the host, on port 3306" try to figure out how to start MySQL from instantrails or if it isn't starting, why it isn't (locate mysql log file).

Anyway, this seems to be more of a instantrails issue then HeidiSQL. You'll probably get better support on their mailing list, forum or whatever means of support there is for instantrails.

Yap, that's indeed the problem and once I restart mysql , Heidisql is working like a dream! Thanks for that tip.

This is a great programme.
