Install Problem - Install Wizard - JDBC connection setup issue

Hi There,

I get "The specified class was not found in the class path." during the database configuration step

I have jtds-1.2.4.jar (these are real jar files, not .zips renamed to jars) in C:\crowd\atlassian-crowd-2.3.2\apache-tomcat\lib

and my config in the wizard looks like this

Databas: Microsoft SQL Server

Driver Class Name: net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver

JDBC URL: jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost:1433/crowd

username:xxx

password: xxx

Hibernate Dialect: org.hibernate.dialect.SQLServerDialect

MY SQL install is MS SQL Server 2008R2

note: I have confluence and JIRA sucessfully installed as well

TIA

still no luck trying different things :(

Ok so I figured it out...

1) for some reason, because I had a confluence instance of tomcat running (not as a service), it gave the JTDS error

2) my DB was actually named crowddb not crowd, so my URL should have been JDBC URL: jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost:1433/crowddb (this should of generated a DB does not exist or something error).

So it seems like there were some false positives and incorrect errors / lack of errors being thrown during the install.

Looks like a couple here bugs to me ;) Reported them to Atlassian
