Dreamfactory returning 500 on an active local MySQL DB

My server (a LAMP stack) is running, and I can see that MySQL is listening on port 3306 on localhost ( So I created a service in the Dreamfactory admin as Remote SQL DB, and the connection as mysql:host=localhost;dbname=testdb I also tried replacing localhost with the ip, and adding the port. But I keep getting "Failed to launch service "maindb": CDbConnection failed to open the DB connection" Any help is very appreciated.

Can you telnet localhost 3306?

Beyond that, we will need to see what’s logged in your DSP’s logs when it fails to connect before we know much more.

Thanks for responding. I did a local Dreamfactory installation, and it is working now.
