hey! got myself a bunch of different vanilla repacks, and I have the same issue with all of 'em.

--- I ran MySQL first, then the Realmd, then Mangos. I've set my realmlist to 127.0.0.1 within my 1.12 WoW folder, i've extracted the repack directly to my C Drive.
I've followed all the steps that most repacks use (including the ones i'm trying to use)

here's my realm log after realmd.exe was launched:
2014-12-19 13:22:16 MaNGOS Zero/0.12.1 (* * Revision 1774 - *) for Win32 (little-endian) [realm-daemon]

and here's my server log after mangosd.exe was launched:

SO - we've established that the issue is that these .exe files aren't connecting to the database. but i'm a huge noob at this kinda stuff (computers) and I really have no idea what I can do to fix it? I just wanna play private server with my friends! ;_;
