Application Can't Connect To Local MySQL But Can Connect From Command

Sep 30, 2011

We have a VB.Net application which works fine in our tests in different Windows XP SP3 machines. However there is one machine in which is displaying this error:

Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts

Using the mysql command, we can successfully connect to the database. We already checked for any other application or firewall that could be blocking the connection but it seems fine. We also reinstalled the system (no errors during the installation) but the MySQL error message doesn't change.

The system settings are exactly the same as in the other computers. We are using "localhost" as server in the connection string. The "hosts" file has its default values (nothing strange in there).

VS 2010 - MySQL Connector As A Resource On My Application - Connect To My MySQL Server

Jun 21, 2012

What i have going on, is i have a MySQL connector as a resource on my application, and im basically trying to connect to my MySQL server, to either a) register a new account, or b) check that the account exists and they are premium, and login, Now what i have run into problems with is: My MySQL Database Name has a _ in it which VB is not allowing for some strange reason.

The code i am using is below

Imports MySql.Data.MySqlClient

Public Class Form1

Function UpdateRecord(ByVal query As String) As Integer


How i can allow the _ into the application, because the only databases that don't have a _ in the user or dbname are a) Paid ones which i DO NOT have the money for or self hosted ones, i cannot leave my computer on 24/7

Can't Connect To MySQL - Unable To Connect To Any Of The Specified Hosts

May 29, 2012

I am trying to connect to my remote MySql Database within Visual Studio using the compact framework.

I can successfully add a data source and preview the data within the IDE so assume that the connection is ok regarding Connection strings and remote access.

However, when I attempt to access the data using any run time control I get the following error when the table is loaded using the .fill method.

MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException was unhandled
Message="Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts."

Application That Has To Connect To A MySQL Database And FTP

May 5, 2012

I'm working on an application in VB.NET that has to connect to a MySQL database and FTP. How secure is it if I used it in an application that I gave to other people. E.g. if I was to let other people use this application would they be able to find out the MySQL and FTP connection details through intercepting packets or something like that? If that's the case how can I work round this? Also, part of my application is an uploader for users to upload files, is FTP secure for that or are there better alternatives ways in doing that? My server is a Windows Server 08 if that makes any difference.

Windows Application Ignores App.config And Uses Something To Connect To Local Database

Jan 10, 2012

The application sits on a virtual environment and when I remote in and run the application, it connects to the remote database. However, when I remote in with a service account and double click the same .exe, it tries to connect to the local host database and ignores the app.config. The code is the same, only the login name I use is different. The login I use is part of the local admin group. Any ideas?

SQL Wont Connect To Local Database?

Apr 29, 2010

Normally i dont use MSsql databases but i was wondering how it works. A friend of mine told me its almost the same as as using MySQL well i can tell its not.I'm used to use mysql in but i don't get this local sql database to work.Where does it go wrong after checking allot of things it going wrong at opening the connection.I will show you in 2 code blocks what i actually do.First of all i create a SQL class so i don't have to write alot of code over and over. (remember the class ain't finish but its enough to make a connection)(local Database used and iam working in VS2010 Ultimate)


The program should do nothing except showing some data out of the database in a textbox at moment. Like i said before already i know for sure its going wrong at opening the connection.The database doesn't have a password.

Connect To MYSQL With .NET?

Aug 11, 2011

I am trying to connect to a MYSQL database using VB.NET to handle some simple tasks at a page level. Usually the connections are made to a MYSQL database. I have downloaded a MYSQL-CONNECTOR 6.0.7. How do I reference or add this to my web project so that I can create the connection and use the provided methods?In the unzipped package I download I do not see any dll files so not sure what to do with this ATM, I am used to seeing a bin folder which contains this.

.NET Connect MySQL Sync PHP?

Jun 2, 2011

I'm just looking for an answer or idea.I plan to connect to mysql (which is done) and also the PHP connected to the mysql.But I'm confuse with something.VB.NET is use for offline things (which people will come to store and buy), but PHP is buying / booking online. (You know the airport things right ? customer can directly go to the airport and buy tickets or they can buy tickets from the internet)

For ex :Customer A come to airport and buy a ticket which is only left 1 tickets. Customer B wanted to buy from the internet. Both of them saw there is only left 1 tickets. So, both of them buying. When Customer A buy, the employee click buy at the same time with Customer B.In here, I'm confuse, how to declare which person should get the ticket because they click buy at the same time (server time because PHP and MySQL located to the server and applciation located to other PC/Machine) ?.

.Net Connect To MySQL Via PHP Web Service?

Dec 23, 2011

I have a VB.Net application that must connect to online MySql database.I already have a MySql database and I connected to it from using the MySql connector (new instance and direct connect).All I want to do is to connect to this database via a PHP web service, this will make a fast connection and more users can be connected at the same time.I tried to search for this, and I think that the solution is easy and simple, but I don't know a lot about PHP; how to upload files and connect via Web service Reference in downloaded these files: And from: which contains ".php" / ".wsdl" / ".dll" files and a VB.Net test solution.I uploaded the files (".php" / ".wsdl" / ".dll") to the FTP manager in the cPanel where I created the database. The problem is, First: I don't know if these files are working.Second: if they are working, I don't know how to accesss these file via HTTP, so I can add the "server.php" address as a web service reference in VB.Net.

Unable To Connect To Mysql?

Mar 11, 2010

i installed visual studio ( full installation)then i got xampp from their site i have mysql and apache running i downloaded the connector from mysql site and i created a simple project to check if i can connect to mysql or not i have made this code so far

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim Connection As String = "Data source=localhost;user=root;password=;Initial Catalog=test;Integrated Security=true;"


im having trouble with an exception though it says {"A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)"}

how can i get rid of this, is it because i installed mysql 2005 with visual studio 2008? and maybe it runs with xampp's mysql and creates these problems?

Error - (10061) ERROR [HY000] [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Can't Connect To MySQL Server On

Jun 4, 2010

I'm connecting to my mysql server using ODBC in, the database is shared throughout the company because it is used in an accounting program (simply accounting), each user has their own account user/pass to login to the database. I have developped a program that uses the accounting database and combines it with other information, my problem is that at least once a day I get this error when I run my program: "(10061) ERROR [HY000] [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Can't connect to MySQL server on"and the error persists for at least 4 hours, for some reason it starts to work again later on in the day.

.net - Cannot Connect To MySQL Server Over Different Domains?

Oct 4, 2011

I'm having a problem connecting to a MySQL server over two different trusted domains.We're developing an app for internal use and have been using MySQL till now. It's a desktop app written in until now all the users were on the same domain and there were no issues. Just recently there was an higher-level decision to split users in 2 different domains for various reasons.The problem is that users from the new domain cannot access the server. If that helps, I was told by the administrators that the users from both domains are trusted. Both machines are running Windows Server - 2003 and 2008.The server port is open, the grants are all in there(base_class@%) but upon attempt access denied for user base_class@datablock2.
