is there on a personal machine or a professional host? if it is a personal home server or test server, make sure that MySql is running.

I had this problem one time, that I installed it, but forgot to turn my database onto "run" thats why it would not pick up.

If it is a professional host, ask them why you cannot connect to your SQL Server.

My 2 cents. Hope it helps!
