Connection refused. MySQL database connection is refused


my php Script:

<?php $servername = "localhost"; $username = "xxxxxxxxx"; $password = "xxxxxxxxxx"; // Create connection with Server $conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password); // Check connection if ($conn->connect_error) { die("Server Connection failed: ". $conn->connect_error. "
"); } echo " Server Connected successfully". "
"; ?>

everything was fine for many days and today i try to run upper script and get error: "Server Connection failed: Connection refused:

I created new Database and run script for new Db but error is again appeared again for new Db. Please help what coudl be wrong?


I’m having the same issue. please let me know if you resolve it. thanx


so far i haven’t got support or feedback from this.
and i’ve tried multiple hosts like
but neither of them works.


I’m facing the same problem too. Although if I go to the site from another internet connection it’s working. But i still can’t access from the existing connection which was working fine for me before.

P.S. Check if you have closed your database connections properly.



i noticed that i can acess server when i use internet connection where i first run my scrip. Any other (i tested 3) give ‘Connection refused’ error. Wierd to me…how can it be so strange? Before crushed it was running everywhere i mean it was tested in a lot of places (diffrent Wi-fi connections).


I’m having a similar issue. I’ve created a simple test PHP script that attempts to connect to the DB and returns a success message if it succeeds and a error code + message if it doesn’t. If I access the script from one device it succeeds, if I access the same script from another device I get a 2002 (Connection refused) error. Had no issues up until a few days ago. Please let me know if you find a resolution to this issue.


Me too. new user for 000webhost.

Please, anyone help us. onegai~


I advise you take away the variables and enter in the data straight into your function. This always works for me!
