Re: Error 10061: connect to MySQL server failed

I'm pretty naive, so please tell me if this is silly:
I looked in My Computer>Environmental Variables>System Variables
to see 3 paths: C:\Perl\site\bin C:\Perl\bin and
C:\Program Files\MySql\MySQL Server 5.5\bin

so i put copies of My.ini in each of those \bin folders. Then I tried this fragment:
#load module
use DBI();
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:database=perltest;host=localhost", "user", "pass");

Here's the error msg: "DBI connect (database=perltest;host=localhost", "user", "pass") failed: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) at ...[[then it gives the folder\ of the script above]]
[[then it continues]]
line 6
ID:->('id') name:->('name') phone:->('phone') n

I'm still confused about all this. Have I misunderstood you?
