Trying to install Vanilla with alternative MySQL port (3307) - "No such host is known" error

edited September 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I'm trying to install Vanilla on Windows with PHP 5.3 and IIS6. I have the php-IIS setup complete, but when I navigate to and fill in the setup info, I get the following error:

"The connection parameters you specified failed to open a connection to the database. The database reported the following error:
SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known."

I'm using the following:
Database Host: localhost:3307

I setup a blank database called van_forum, and grated full permission to a new user for that database. I've verified that the user has access by logging into MySQL Query Browser. Any help?

    Php can't find your localhost. When this type of thing happens I usually recommend you try your localhost ip address
