Newbie to My Sql.... need some assistance

I am BRAND new to MySQL. I am trying to set up a local testing server on my home computer so that I can manage and update my website. I want to do everything locally. I successfully installed Apache, PHP and MySQL.. Everything seems to be working fine. I am also using PHpMyAdmin. I successfully imported a database that was created for me when my site was first designed. That went ok.. What I am having trouble with is connecting to my server.

When I try to view my pages in my localhost, I keep getting 'could not connect to server". I've tried every possible combination there seemed to be to get this working but can't seem to figure it out.

Is there someething that I am missing? I am sure that it's very simple.. I just am too new to even know where to begin and how to fix it.

Thanks in advance.
