I tried to install moodle on localhost on windows with xampp, but when i have to configure the db i have this error (i use the port: 8080):
Error: Database connection failed
It is possible that the database is overloaded or otherwise not running properly.
The site administrator should also check that the database details have been correctly specified in config.php
Warning: mysqli::__construct(): (HY000/2002): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. in C:\Users\user\Desktop\xampp\htdocs\moodle\lib\dml\mysqli_native_moodle_database.php on line 79
This is line 79:
$conn = new mysqli($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass, '', $dbport, $dbsocket); // Connect without db
I also tried to use the port 3306 or 80 but with the first port i have the same error while with the second port it goes in loop.
Someone can help me?
Not a Windows person ... maybe Usman (resident Windows expert) will jump in here.
