    Odd Behavior on LocalHost


    I have an implementation of MySQL that was installed as part of XAMPP (5.6.12-0) on my "localhost" development server (MacBook Pro).

    When the computer is not online, the MySQL server will not start and I get the following messages:
    Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.

    phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.
    If the computer is online, it works fine... this is a new development and now some of the pages in my application just hang now on the development server.

    What would have caused MySQL to suddenly be looking for something on the internet to start in a local environment?

    How do I fix it?

    What is the host phpMyAdmin is trying to connect to? The actual host name/string.
