I can't open my website anymore

problems related to mysql connection

Hello everyone,

I encountered an error when trying to open my WordPress site in Local WP, and I would appreciate your help in resolving it. Here is the error I’m facing:

Error: Command failed: C:\Users\Vincent Borgies\AppData\Local\resources\extraResources\lightnin…\mysqldmin.exe ping mysqladmin: connect to server at ‘::1’ failed error: ‘Can’t connect to MYSQL server on ‘::1 (100061)’ Check that mysqld is running on ::1 and that the port is 10007. You can check this by doing ‘telnet ::1 10007’

I have verified that the MySQL service is running and the database connection details in the Local WP configuration file are correct. I also tried replacing the IP address ‘::1’ with ‘localhost’, but unfortunately, nothing seems to work.

I even attempted to uninstall Local WP completely and reinstall it, but the issue remains unresolved.

If anyone has experienced this error before or has any suggestions on how to resolve it, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

One or two sentence summary of the issue.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?


Describe the steps that others can take to replicate this issue. If you have screenshots that can help clarify what is happening, please include them!

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?

    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi there @vincentbrgs -

Other users have been experiencing this when other Developer applications are running at the same time. Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

You might need to try checking for port conflicts, closing down all apps and then opening only Local, restarting your machine, etc.
