Cannot connect to Microsoft SQL Server 2017 "The TCP/IP connection to the host myhost, port 1433 has failed"

Completed

Hi, I'm getting the following error:

"[08S01] The TCP/IP connection to the host myhost, port 1433 has failed. Error: "Connection timed out: no further information. Verify the connection properties. Make sure that an instance of SQL Server is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port. Make sure that TCP connections to the port are not blocked by a firewall."."

When I try to create a database for my project.

 

I've tried every possible solution I could find online. I changed the ports in the configuration manager to 1433, checked if the port is blocked by the firewall (it's not), turned on the SQL Server Browser and nothing worked.

I'm getting desperate here. I really want to use Rider because I don't get along with VS.

 

Would appreciate every help I can get.

 

Thanks.
