I have been using MSaccess for years and have finally decided to switch to mySQL and have noting bt a basturd of a time trying to figure out how to switch over. I have installed mySQL5 and CF9 developer edition on my test machine at home. try as I might, I cannot connect to mySQL database. I keep getting the following error:

Connection verification failed for data source: test

java.sql.SQLException: Timed out trying to establish connection

Driver Class: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

Username: rickclark
