    Default can't connect to mysql on 'local host', installing 5.0.19

    I had to delete all old files and disable norton firewall to get the install
    to work.
    but I still get, after everything's applied,
    can't connect to mysql on 'local host' (10061)

    10061 is a winsock error WSAECONNREFUSED.
    so the dialog box recommends to press the skip button "because you are
    probably doing an upgrade (shouldn't! I wasn't) and run the config wizard.
    so I did and that went OK.

    the service got installed, and can start and stop, but won't connect.
    probably the same error, but can't tell because no log details.


    I have seen this error message talked about on this newsgroup before, but
    with no response except "RTM". well, I read the manual. no useful info. I
    was upgrading from 5.0.18. but then I ditched it when that didn't work and
    went for fresh install.

    How can I fix this?

    Wrong hostname, try localhost.

    solution found. delete entire old mysql server directory before installing a
    new one. then install goes fine.
