I am planning to use Webmatrix as a testing arena for creating and completing the preparation of a website before publishing it. Working with websites on local computer should be much faster than doing that on an online server.
That is why I downloaded a database that I have already created on my online host account, and wanted to import it into webmatrix to continue building my new website using Webmatrix. Here, I did not know how to imort the DB I downloaded from my host, into webmatrix. There is seemingly no way to do that, or to import tables into an existing DB on webmatrix.
Is that not possible?
2- I tried to create a new DB on webmatrix which is a part of installing Wordbress on WM (new site from web gallery --> Wordpress), but I get this error :
The database 'xxxx' could not be created. ---> MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException: Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts. ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:3306
I have installed PHP 5.2 and Mysql on Webmatrix.
Why does this happen?
