Lib Directory Not Found When Using FISHEYE_INST

I am upgrading our lab Crucible/Fisheye instance in lab to 3.0.2 and as part of the process am trying to set it up to use the FISHEYE_INST. I have followed the directions at including copying the data, var and cache directories. However, I cannot start the app up and get this error in the log: Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Database not available (Unable to connect to MySQL database jdbc:mysql:// java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver: is the database driver jar file properly installed in the FISHEYE_INST/lib directory?). Current state: NO_DB Why is Crucible/Fisheye looking for the lib directory in FISHEYE_INST/lib instead of in the directory where I extracted the application zip file? I could copy the lib directory to the FISHEYE_INST directory as well, but that doesn't appear to be the way it was designed to work.

Hi there,

Please download the jdbc driver from and extract the connector file on your FISHEYE_INST/lib, then restart FishEye and give another try restarting it.

Please let me know how it goes.


Thanks, it worked!
