My SQL database could not be opened with communication failure. This database and connector worked once last night and now it couldn't be opened again . I tried pinging it on my DOS command line, same error. I pinged "Localhost", same problem I did it standalonne on the Database view, same problem
I am running MySQL 5.1 and Tomcat 6.0.18. The communication link failure error is below no matter how you try to connect to it.
Many Thanks in advance.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Try turning on your MySQL service manually. I started it (from the Services dialog) by hand it (it was on Automatic). And, it connected!
