is it simply that the mysql jdbc driver needs updating? It seems most of the users having issue are using mysql 5.6.x version… and people without issue are on older versions. 5.6.x is drastically different over the older 5.1.x that most “server” linux distros ship with… on windows servers of course users must manually install mysql, so they get the latest package.
i use mysql 5.1.x as my database on a openfire 3.8.2 server running on CentOS 6.x. all works as expected.
EDIT: I just looked, Openfire 3.8.2 is using MySQL JDBC Driver version 5.0.8 – the latest from the mysql site is 5.1.26 – perhaps someone experiencing this issue should try updating the driver and testing it out…
