Install problem with external database MYSQL 4.1

I am trying to install the wildfire on fedora core 4 with mysql 4.1.19

Install seemed to be going fine untill it reached the database setup screen where it asked me to enter the database info (I have netered all of the database info as required)

Before that I have created a wildfire database and imported the db schema.

I tried using localhost for the hostname and the domain name but still nothing

I checked the log file and this is the error

Anyone has any idea whats wrong ?

Hi Faruk,

MESSAGE: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

is very clear. Did you forget to specify the port number?

LG

Yes I have specified the port number

jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/wildfire

and I am using the mysql driver

I did notice the message but I have specified everything as it is supose to be so I don’'t understand why it is being refused

I can login with no problem to mysql with that username from shell.

Any other suggestions ?

Thanks

Hi,

you could also specify the 127.0.0.1 IP address but I wonder if this helps. I think that a missing permission to access the wildfire database does result in another error.

Could you check whether port 3306 is open and if the user (you did create a new user for the wildfire database?) has the proper permissions to connect?

LG

Ok you were partialy right , it wasn’'t that port 3306 was blocked its that in /etc/my.cnf

skip-networking was turned on.

Thanks for your help
