I have configured the Database how it is described in the documentation (

However, the following error message occur if im trying to connect to the database during the installation config:

The following error(s) occurred:

  • Configuring the database failed. Couldn't create the database schema.
  • java.sql.SQLException: Login failed for user 'confluenceusers'.

The user "confluenceusers" is created and have all permissions, can somebody tell me what i am doing wrong?

You're giving it the wrong name/password combination, or you haven't granted the user access to the database correctly.

Go back over the installation of the database side, and check the username/password combination with another tool like squirrel or the SQL Server tool.
