Was in IT many years ago, then went into management and have become useless.  Have seen ColdFusion in action and would love to play with it.  Learn-in-a-week is starting to accumulate non-productive days.

ColdFusion 11 installed, MySQL 5.7 installed - all running, Sample files down and verified, Port 3306 seems OK , created database from Command line.  When using CF Administrator  get the message that connection to database server could not be created.

Any help from the community would be gratefully received

ColdFusion no longer ships with the driver for MySQL. You have to download and install it.

To do so, go to the web page of MySQL Connector/J, the official JDBC driver for MySQL. Choose 'Platform Independent' and download the ZIP file mysql-connector-java-x.y.z-bin. Here x.y.z stands for the version (the current version is 5.1.37).

Unpack the ZIP file. Locate within the contents the JAR file mysql-connector-java-x.y.z-bin.jar (current version mysql-connector-java-5.1.37-bin.jar). Copy the JAR file to the lib directory of your ColdFusion installation (On Windows, this is, by default, the directory C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\lib).

Restart ColdFusion. You're done. The installation of the driver is complete.
