Could not lookup datasource successfully


I tried to connect to a mysql database located on a remote server.

I ve added my config in the server.xml like this:


<Resource name="jdbc/confluence" auth="Container"
type="com.mchange.v2.c3p0.ComboPooledDataSource" driverClass="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"
user="confluence" password="confluence" factory="org.apache.naming.factory.BeanFactory"
acquireIncrement="1" minPoolSize="5" maxPoolSize="25" maxIdleTime="1800" />


But i get this error:

  • Could not lookup datasource successfully: com.atlassian.config.bootstrap.BootstrapException: Could not locate datasource: jdbc/confluence


Thanks for your help.
