Bamboo installation stucks at database connection.

Hi! I am trying to install 5.8.1 on centos 7 + mysql 5.6, but installation fails at database connection. I use java 1.8 (Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)) and last version of mysql connector. Also I can install it with HSQL database but not with mysql.

Could you help me?

Thank you.

Hi Alexander, 

Can you check if there's some firewall blocking the communication between bamboo and your database? Please try to do a telnet on the IP Address of your database by the Bamboo server and see if this works. If so, you might facing some issue related to credentials. 

Also, check if there's selinux enabled on Linux. You can check this with the command 

cat /etc/selinux/config

If this is enforced, please change for disable and restart the Linux for testing purposes.
