Wildfire.xml configuration error--Authenticating to existing user database

I’'m having some trouble working out the proper configuration to authenticate the username and password to my existing userdatabase. I am currently working on a scratch copy on my local machine. I downloaded the latest version today. I ran through the installation and made sure that everything worked, before setting about the task of trying to configure the XML file.

This is what I came up with, after looking at other configurations.

This is the beginning of the errors I received after trying it out.

ERROR 11756 (): Error reading XML properties

org.dom4j.DocumentException: Error on line 89 of document : The entity “dbpass” was referenced, but not declared. Nested exception: The entity “dbpass” was referenced, but not declared.

I’‘m not really good at this, so forgive me if I’'ve totally screwed things up.

User information resides in the

phpizabi_users Table

username is the username field within the phpizabi_users table

password is the password field inside the phpizabi_users table

email is the email field inside the phpizabi_users table

Let me know if there’'s any other information I can provide.

Hello, i am not sure but i think your Problem ist this line:

<connectionString>jdbc:mysql://localhost/database?user=dbuser&dbpass;=pass word</connectionString>

Replace the “&” between “dbuser” and “dbpass” with “& a m p;”. (Without the spaces between the charakters, it seems that you cant post html code in this forum)

Also delete the “;” after “dbpass”.

try this:

<connectionString>jdbc:mysql://localhost/database?user=dbuser& a m p;dbpass=password</connectionString>

Let me know if it solves your Problem.

I tried this line after your suggestion

This was the error that I received

ERROR 11756 (): Error reading XML properties

org.dom4j.DocumentException: Error on line 89 of document : The entity name must immediately follow the ‘’&’’ in the entity reference. Nested exception: The entity name must immediately follow the ‘’&’’ in the entity reference.

your wrote “…dbpass&=password”

Dont use the “&” together with “=”

Be sure you use “& a m p ;” an not “&”

I wish I could post without the forum changing the stuff we put into post.

I did place the “amp” where you suggested to place it. The forum changed it to a “&” when I posted here.

perhaps if you emailed me.

will.watson@earthlink.net

it would be easier to pass the proper information back and forth.
