Re: Pls help: WO_API: failed with error code 5 SQL Connect failed

1. Please use proper Tags in your Thread Title
2. Please review the Forum and Section Rules prior to posting. --> http://forum.ragezone.com/f788/war-section-rules-please-read-926238/
3. Your error shows: You have not finished setting up your server. Please review the instructions. From the thread you got the source code.
4. Use the "Search" feature found at the top of the forum page. There are numerous "Error code 5" results in this section. I highly recommend finding the one written by ztimer

http://forum.ragezone.com/f792/solve-error-code-5-sql-1008036/ <-- Top of the Help Section -- Can't miss it if you look.
http://forum.ragezone.com/f792/help-sql-database-community-edition-1008518/ <-- this one by ztimer goes into details about additional configuration you may need to review.

I would recommend starting with the Rules, then these 2 threads. Reply if you need further assistance after searching.

Thank you very much :0)

PS: I've edited your thread title and put your error into a code block.
