Re: ERROR 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'host ip'(10060)

The number 2003 in this case is a MySQL client-side error code; it is only coincedence that it is also the version of your Windows operating system.

90% of the time, this error is due either to the MySQL Server not running, or else firewall configuration on the Windows server blocking access on port 3306 (or whatever port your MySQL instance is configured to use).

The sequence of messages output from your script suggests that it might be connecting successfully to retrieve the table structure, etc., and only fails when retrieving rows from the SELECT query. But I don't know the code in your script. For instance, it could be retrieving the table structure from a different MySQL instance, or it could be printing all four messages before attempting to connect.
