I have a Confluence v5.6.1 installation that has an external MySQL database prepped for it, yet when I go through the setup for Confluence I never get to the page to configured the connection to the external database. I have the MySQL JDBC driver JAR file in my <confluence_home>/WEB-INF/lib directory with the appropriate file ownership and permissions. Does Confluence require a full license to be configured this way (i.e., with an external database)?
Ah, yes, there's a bug in 5.6.1 - if you give it an evaluation licence, it will skip selection and go with the HSQL internal database.
