Hello all. I am very excited about having this service on my website. I am a complete noob when it comes to this stuff, though, so I need some very clearly explained help with an installation problem I’'ve run into.
I am on the Database Settings page of the installation (page 3, I believe) and have received the following error:
A connection to the database could not be made. View the error message by opening the “\logs\error.log” log file, then go back to fix the problem.
I viewed the error and it was an incredibly lengthy and incomprehensible mess that says, in part:
2005.12.16 22:48:48 [org.jivesoftware.database.ConnectionPool.(ConnectionPool.java:108)
] Failed to create new connections on startup. Attempt 0 of 3
com.mysql.jdbc.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure due to underlying exception:
- BEGIN NESTED EXCEPTION **
at java.net.InetAddress.getAllByName(Unknown Source)
…and it goes on, and on, and on. I am eager to have this service implemented, but need some help doing so. Please respond.
