I created a server and almost everything is ready but I can’t figure out how to make the database.
I have read so many tutorials and still can’t connect it to the server.cfg! The server is Home hosted here are some pictures please help ;-;

Well I’ve never used xampp to run a standalone database before as MySQL and Maria DB have the ability to run as their own service. If you tell me why you need xampp I might be able to help a bit better with that.

If it were me, I would backup any data in the DB and do a clean install of either MySQL or Maria DB. Maria DB is a lot faster and that’s what I recommend, however you can use either. You can find MySQL download here, and Maria DB here. Make sure to select the correct download for your system!

After the service is installed and running properly you can import any data you had before, or start fresh. Your connection string looks fine, so if you cannot reach the DB, it’s most likely because something is wrong with the DB installation.

Take my words with a grain of salt, Im not some expert. Backup your work before trying things. I’m sure someone more experienced can correct anything I may have screwed up or left out. More information would help too, mainly what your console printout has to say towards the end. ESX should have some printouts of the database connection and if it was successful or not. ESX is pretty good about printing out information like that.

Hope you get this solved!
