My code:
#include "MySQL\mysql.h"
#pragma comment( lib, "MySQL/libmysql.lib" )

int main(void){
MYSQL *sql = new MYSQL(), *connection = 0;
mysql_init(sql);
connection = mysql_real_connect(sql, "localhost", "root", "mypass", "mydb", 0, 0, 0);
if (connection == NULL) {
printf(mysql_error(sql));
printf("\n");
system("pause");
return 0;
}
return 0;
}



It outputs this:
Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)


However if I use
mysql -uroot -pmypass
in command line, it connect successfully.

Anyone know what's the problem? ^^

Maybe try NULL or 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost, and check that your firewall is not blocking your program.
