Installation error

hi,

i am trying to install the openfire in linux and am having problems. when I goto the “Database settings - standard connection” step i get the error “A connection to the database could not be made. View error message by opening the error log.” The error log shows the message below. Any idea what I need to do to make this work. I have created the openfire database and use the sql file to create the tables. I also created a user called “openfireuser” which successfully connects from command line. I am running the script on the same server and am not connected remotely. I stopped the firewall to test if this was related with that but this doesnt seem to be the case.

Any idea?

thanks
