Unable to connect to the Database


I was trying creating a MySQL Database Connection on the newly installed Ignition 8.0

I followed the lecture of connecting to it and downloaded the Community Edition of JDBC Driver from the official website and have updated in the Drivers of the Config Section, however, when trying to create the database, the result coming is faulted.

On checking for the reason causing it, it says “Connection refused: connect”. I’ve tried everything I understand, can anyone suggest me where I’m going wrong.

There are some things you should check:

  • Is the database on the same or a different computer?
  • Can you connect to it with MySQL Workbench, from the Ignition computer?
  • Do you have firewalls or other network safety features blocking access?

I got the answer, my SQL server was disabled so on enabling it to Automatic, it starts coming in.
