Hey Chris,

Could you paste the complete error log? It seems that the beginning of the first exception is missing. And the root exception that is generating this problem might be missing as well.

Regards,

Here it is. Thanks for your help.

Hey Chris,

java.net.SocketException

MESSAGE: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

That exception means that Wildfire was not able to connect to the database. From the stack trace I see that you are trying to connect to MySQL. Have you checked if MySQL is running, that a firewall is not closing the MySQL port and that MySQL (if running in another machine) allows other machines to connect?

Hope that helps.

Regards,

– Gato

This is whats troubling me.

I know i can connect to it. i tested the connection. With the same user and pw.

In case something was wrong i even setup the database on a remote mysql box that other sites of mine connect to and i got the same error.

Hi,

did you test the connection with a short java JDBC program? Maybe you are using just another port?

LG

any program you can suggest? i see mysql running on port 3306.

Thanks,

Chris

ok so i resolved the issue. Why did this work im not sure. A friend of mine got it to work on a Fedora box. He sent me the steps. I was trying to install it on a Unbuntu box. Again, im not saying to do this, but it worked for me.

I installed Fedora. dl the wildfire rpm.

su to root.

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

after wild fire was installed.

cd /opt/wildfire/bin/extra

chmod +x redhat_postinstall.sh

./redhat_postinstall.sh

this installed

the wildfired shell script in /etc/init.d

ran …/wildfire start

connected to wizard site and everything connected.

I am only assuming that the wildfire rpm installed the appropriate JRE it needs.

because i know for a fact my fedora system was running jdk1.4 and wildfire needs 1.5

Hope this helps anyone else.
