Fix wrong database dialect

System information shows the wrong database dialect (errors appear on frontpage):


Database nameMicrosoft SQL Server
Database version10.50.6000
Database Dialectcom.atlassian.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect
Database Driver NameN/A
Database Driver Version1.2

but the conf/server.xml states


<Resource name="jdbc/ConfluenceDS" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"
validationQuery="select 1"
maxActive="20" />


how should I fix this?


BTW it is a fairly old version

I'm not sure it's the "dialect".  Could you tell us what the errors actually are?
