Unable to load database driver from your FISHEYE_INST/lib directory.


I am trying to connect to a mySQL database, but when i test the connection i receive this error: Unable to load database driver from your FISHEYE_INST/lib directory. 

I have installed the newest driver to the lib folder, but I'm not sure what's wrong. Any ideas?

I have just upgraded to fisheye/crucible 4.4.1.

Here's my log:

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (com.amazonaws.jmx.spi.SdkMBeanRegistry).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

Figured it out. Grammar error, hadn't replaced hostname with the actual host name silly me.
