Load MySQL Database, can't connect to host. [SOLVED]

  • Hi,

    I am trying to connect to a database using the following code:
    @#include <QtCore/QCoreApplication>
    #include <QtSql>
    #include <iostream>
    #define q2c(string) string.toStdString()
    int main(int countArg, char **listArg)
    QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QMYSQL");
    std::cout << "Connected " << q2c(db.hostName()) << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Error :(" << std::endl << q2c(db.lastError().text()) << std::endl;

    Here the output at execution:
    Error :(
    Can't connect to MySQL server on 'pivoine' (111) QMYSQL: Unable to connect

    I don't know what to try, thanks for your help.

    what about the port? Is the server running on a different port (default port for MYSQL server is 3306)? If so you need to specifiy it. But it wouldn't be bad to add it anyway to rid out this cause.

  • Can the application load the database plugin?
    Try to list the available database drivers with QSqlDatabase::drivers

  • In fact it was a stupid mistake of mane related to the hostame for mysql.
    So now it is fine.
