Wildfire not connecting to MySQL during setup

Hello,

I just installed Wildfire 2.4.4 and created a MySQL DB for it.

When I try to set it up over the Webpage, it can’'t find my MySQL Server.

I used this during the DB setup:

com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/wildfire

I even tried it with the DNS name, but the same:

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 use JRE 1.5.0_06-b05 on a SuSE 9.3 machine.

The MySQL Version is 4.1.10a

Can anybody help me with this problem ?

Here is what I have in my error.log:

2006.02.07 18:23:32 [org.jivesoftware.database.ConnectionPool.(ConnectionPool.java:108)] Failed to create new connections on startup. Attempt 0 of 3

I know my problem (which took me about 4 hours to figure out) was simply due to the fact the MySQL user I was trying to connect with didin’'t have the right host configured. Make sure the user has localhost or % (which I believe is any).

The user has localhost configured, so it must be something different

what user name & password are you using for MySQL?

default is root with no password. This is not related to the unix login password.

The DB has his own User + Pass.

It has nothing to do with the MySQL Server, Username or Password.

I can login with no problem.

What else could I check ?

Another JRE Version ?

Another Wildfire version ?

Hi,

can you connect to mysql using a short java application which uses jdbc? Are you using the right IP and port while trying to connect?

Currently I’'m not aware of a short program (would be < 100 lines of code) to test this.

LG

I try to find a test java application.

I don’'t use IP, I use localhost.

The port is also the right one.

I had the same problem but I resolved mine by:

jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/wildfire - Did NOT work

jdbc:mysql://server.com:3306/wildfire - Worked!

Also the guide here is great for Debian users:
