Can't connect to Database server

P: n/a
I have installed MySQL on WinXP Pro

When attempting to access various commands from the command prompt (eg help,
set password etc) I get the following error.

ERROR 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

When trying to access the MySQL server via a local web page I am also unable
to connect to the database.

I have successfully installed Apache 2.0.35-win32-x8 and PHP.

Appreciate any suggestions for what may be the problem here.

Also how do I import databases and their records from a previous install on
another computer?

Thanks
David

One way is to use mysqldump:
