Need to reconfigure the my-sql server. i used “mysql-installer-community-” to reconfigure the server. and now it is working well. If “MySQL57” will looks in windows services. then it will work properly. Installer community will restart the server or you can also restart manually by below flow

Step-1-> Open Run or type Run in task-bar search of window and press Enter Step-2->Type “services.msc” in Run and press Enter Step-3->Search “MySQL57” in windows services Step-4->If server is not running then Right click on mouse button and click on Start.

Before doing this need to reconfigure the mySql server for removing “Can’t Connect to MySQL Server on IPAddress (10061)”

If “MySQL57” is not looking on windows services then you should need to reconfigure again.if it will shows in services then it will work properly.

By default MySQL will listen for connections only from the local host. To enable remote connections like the one used by mysqlworkbench you will need to modify your /etc/my.cnf and change




or simply comment out the line completely. Once this is done, restart MySQL with the command

service mysql restart

and you should be able to make your connection.
