Unable to connect to MySQL server.

I have looked everywhere for the answer to this, I have browsed these forums and I have not been able to find an answer. Everytime I start the overwatch server it starts fine, then when I join it will get stuck at a loading screen with a zero next to the loading bar and not go anywhere. Something opens up when it gets there, a hiveext console window and it is just spamming "Unable to connect to MySQL server" "Retrying in 1 second(s)"

in your hiveext.ini file are you pointing to the right database name?

Is MySQL installed and running as a service?

Make sure the user you're connecting as has the right password in the hiveext.ini and check and test the permissions that the account has. Make sure you're using the correct hive dll, etc etc
