im running win xp pro with apache server 1.3.20, PHP 4.1.1 and MYSQL 3.23.39

im using them to learn php/mysql so that i can create better sites. so im running localhost.

i have got apache and php4 running happily (ie when i run a phpinfo() i get the info page) and MYSQL seems to be happy, despite having not wirtten a my.cnf file anywhere!!

the phpinfo says there is mysql 3.23.39 support but when i try to use mysql in php scripts i get errors
Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in
Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in

any help on how to get it all running nicely together would be much appreciated
