Hello, I am not sure what to enter on the Crowd installation wizard when I want to connect to a MS Sql Server database. The wizard prompts you for the following. Most fields are auto-filled once I select 'JDBC connection' for the database type.
Type of database: JDBC connection
Database: Microsoft SQL Server
Driver class name: net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver
JDBC URL: jdbc:jtds:sqlserver::/localhost:1433/crowd
Hibernate dialect: org.hibernate.dialect.SQLServerDialect
I am not familiar with the JDBC connection string syntax so I'm sure I'm missing something simple. I am used to a prompt for host server and database, but not sure where that gets entered.
Thanks for any help!
The host server and database are specified in the JDBC URL. We happen to use SQL Server as an example in our doc: Running the Setup Wizard:
for SQL Server, the default URL is jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost:1433/crowd , and if you wish to connect to crowddb instead, modify the URL so that it looks like this: jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost:1433/crowddb
In the JDBC URL above, the host server is "localhost" and the database names are "crowd" and "crowddb".
I look forward to hearing whether you can connect to your MS SQL database during the setup Wizard for Crow now.
