Migrating to MYSQL for Stash 2.12.3

Chris Langridge May 26, 2014


I have a working POC of Stash 2.12.3 currently connecting to an MS-SQL DB and I'm looking to migrate this to a MYSQL DB. When i select the Databse administration and select MySQL Database type, i get the error "The required driver is not installed. Please see the documentation for more information.

I then followed the instructions and installed the mysql-connector-java-5.1-bin.jar into my Stash Home directory/lib folder and restarted Stash but i still get the following error when i try to migrate.

Does this file have to be renamed at all?

All of my installs are local and my current version of MYSQL is workbench 6.1.

Windows Server 2008 R2

Stash 2.12.3

Any help/advice would be apprecaited.

Thanks in advnace

In my stash instance varsion 2.10 I have used mysql-connector-java-5.1.10.jar connect it to my sql 5.1.

Hi - Thanks for your response - I have tried this version of the mysql-connector and i get the same issue.

Is it as simple as copying this file to Stash Home/lib directory and restarting the stash service or am missing something else?


have you restart stash after coping the driver to lib?

If no, restart stash

Thanks - restarting this fixed the problem. I was only restarting the windows service!
