Crowd installation: "specified class was not found in the class path"

I'm trying to run the setup wizard for Crowd.

On the Database Config screen I have the following:

* JDBC Connection

* Database: MySQL

* Driver Class Name: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

* JDBC URL: jdbc:mysql://localhost/crowd?autoReconnect=true&characterEncoding=utf8&useUnicode=true (default)

* Username: crowduser

* Password: [passwd]

* Hibernate Dialect: org.hibernate.dialect.MySQL5InnoDBDialect (default)

I have confirmed that I have mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar in {CROWD-INSTALLATION_DIR}/apache-tomcat/lib

I'm getting this error message

The specified class was not found in the class path.

I don't see anything in the logs other than

Current setup step is /console/setup/setupdatabase.action

How do I fix this?

Did you reset crowd after adding the mysql jar?

Shutting down Crowd and restarting did it. Thank you. Since I was using the wizard instead of actually working in Crowd I didn't think about the fact that maybe Crowd needed to be restarted.
