I had to wipe my Win2003 server that had alfresco running and so installed Win 2008.

-I installed alfresco ok on it (alfresco-community-3.4.d-installer-win-x64.exe)
-It opened to Share on localhost OK.
-I shut it down. (Closed windows services alfrescoMySQL and alfrescoTomcat; there was no alfrescoOpenOffice service, tho OO does seem to be installed)
-I replaced the new alf_data directory with the one I had saved from the old installation, per restore directions.
-I tried to go to mysql to restore the old database without success:
—From command line  C:\alfresco\mysql\bin  mysql.exe -u root -p
—Get prompted for password.
—Then this error message:  "ERROR 2003 <HY000>: Can't connect to mysql server on localhost. (error 10061)"

I think I'm following the instructions for how to restore. But maybe there's something different because of the new installation?
