MySQL is running on XAMPP and working fine. I am trying to connect to it through the Windows Subsystem for Linux running a Flask app using flask-msqldb.
But when I run the Flask app and try to make a connection (
mysql.connection.cursor()) the following error ensues:
_mysql_exceptions.OperationalError: (2002, "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)")
Is it even possible to make them connect?
