I tried to manage a DB connection and now I get this error. How do I get rid of it ? Do you find MySql confusing and less user friendly as compared to MS-SQL ?

I am a complete newbie to databases and sql. I am learning it to do jdbc stuff. So, I am not able to understand the meaning of your question. Please tell me how this mysql works. I tried MS-SQL and it was much easier. But most tutorials use this complicated mysql, that is why i am forced to use it.

Run mysql command from the command line and check if it connects to the database properly.
What operating system are you using ? WIndows, unix ?
Check if the database server is started, if not - start it.

Here is an example form my pc - I am using linux:
