Check with the below steps can help you:

Verify that the MySQL server is running: Check if the MySQL service is running on your local machine. You can do this by looking for the MySQL process in the task manager or using the appropriate command for your operating system. For example, on Linux, you can run the command sudo systemctl status mysql to check the status of the MySQL service.

Check the MySQL server port: By default, MySQL runs on port 3306. Ensure that the port is not blocked by any firewall or security settings. If you have a firewall enabled, make sure it allows incoming connections on port 3306.

Verify the MySQL server configuration: Check the MySQL server configuration file (typically my.cnf or my.ini) and ensure that it is correctly configured. Look for settings related to network connectivity, such as the bind-address parameter, and make sure it is set to or localhost to allow connections from the local machine.
