MySQL Connection problem

Went through the other forum posting and although I found stuff that seemed similar couldn’'t find anything that solved my problem.

I’'m trying to set up a MySQL database with an evaluation copy of wildfire enterprise and get the following error:

Database setup or configuration error: Please verify your database settings and check the logs/error.log file for detailed error messages.

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: java.lang.NullPointerException

at org.jivesoftware.wildfire.XMPPServer.verifyDataSource(XMPPServer.java:675)

at org.jivesoftware.wildfire.XMPPServer.start(XMPPServer.java:393)

at org.jivesoftware.wildfire.XMPPServer.

You select the database during the setup of wildfire.

Please stop wildfire and restore your original wildfire.xml file.

From there, modify the following:

This will configure Wildfire to take you through the setup screens, where you can select and configure your database connection.

After making the change in widlfire.xml, restart wildfire and launch the admin console. You will then proceed through the setup where you can configure your mysql database.

To help clarify what is set, and how to set the values, please read the installation and database guides in the documentation directory.

Still no luck:

PS.

MySQL is configure to not disallow networking, to allow TCP/IP on 3306 and to allow named Pipes. I also tried using both “localhost” and “127.0.0.1” for the host.

So I assume mysql is on the same machine?

If so configure it to allow networking.

Yes, it’'s on the same machine.

As far as I know “not disallow” means allow:

I can’'t find anywhere else that addresses networking permissions… ?

I would take Openfire out of the equation. Can you connect via the command line using the proper username and password?

mysql --user username --host 127.0.0.1 --password dbname

(enter password)

Make sure you can see and query the database.

Yes, as I mentioned originally, I have no difficulties connecting to and manipulating the database through the command line. (Although reverified with precisely the command above – I think I may have used only “localhost” and /or the pipe before, but the IP address works as well).

would you attach an updated version of your jive_startup.xml file?

Have you run the database creation scripts against your database?

Cheers,

Nate

Yes:

try granting all privs on your zilingim objects explicitly:

mysql> grant all privileges on zilingim.* to ‘‘wildfire’’@’‘localhost’’ identified by ‘’’’;

also, i see from your posts that you’'ve tried different cases for the jdbc url

jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/ZiLingIM

jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/zilingim

this might work either way on windows, but probably not on *nix. i would use whatever you originally used to create the database.

privileges:

Yeah, I had done that before but repeated nonetheless. No change.

cases:

Yeah, I’'ve tried all the permutations of localhost vs. 127.0.0.1 and ZiLingIM vs zilingim, and tested both ZiLingIM and zilingim from the command prompt and they both work. Did not make a difference for Wildfire though.

ARGH.

I restarted the MySQL server and for whatever reason that solved the problem. I have no idea why. Anyway, it’'s working now.
