Jive DB connection broke out of nowhere!

Hello all,

I have Jive installed using a My SQL DB. I logged into the interface, created 4 users, one group and changed the hostname to anothername. I then restart the Jive service, and now all of a sudden I hit the web interface on 9090 and I get the install page? Since (at the time) I did not put too much time into I, I assume that changing the hostname maybe broke somthing, but now I can install it?

I tried to create another database and manually edit the “jive-messenger.xml” manually but to no avail. I have uninstalled and re-installed the rpm package but I get “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.” and the same or similar error while trying to use a Mysql database connection.


tail 15 /opt/jive_messenger/logs/error.log

Why would this thing just stop working???

This did happan after I installed a php-mysql package if that helps…

OS is CentOS 4

I have now uninstalled jive and installed the latest stable version with the same result…

This has gotten me stumpted?? what changed, why no worky??

attempting to install with the embedded database and using mysql both complains “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.”

but now, nothing is writing to the logs direcotory? nothing is in there?

Thanks for any help

Hi admstng,

but now, nothing is writing to the logs directory?

nothing is in there?

Are the permission on the directory correct?

Thanks,

Ryan
