ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown MySQL server host, please help



Hey all,

I keep getting this error when I attempt step 17 of the Mangos Easybuild guide for Windows. I have MariaDB installed and wondered if this has something to do with it?

I tried the other day to do it and succeeded with the database creation (I used all defaults) but then later hit a wall with the EasyBuild program (that issue was resolved today). 

Now I have this new problem where I keep getting this error no matter what I do. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I currently only have MariaDB installed as that was what they recommended in the guides as the new software to use. I'll install the original MySQL though and see what happens, thanks for the tip. 

I'm getting errors regarding the hostname (Error 2005),  and the port I'm using ( [3306] is the exact syntax I use, not sure if I need the brackets around it though).

I only get the error for the port when I use all the defaults. (Unknown suffix '[' used for variable 'port' (value '[3306]')
Tools\mysql: Error while setting value '[3306]' to 'port')
