I used the instructions from https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver089/connecting-jira-applications-to-mysql-5-7-1005346014.html. After making the database changes recommended, the mysql service will no longer start. I then commented out the changes that were causing it to crash, but was unable to create a successful connection. I was setting all of this up in a test environment, so to make sure it wasn't me missing something, in installed mysql 220.127.116.11 and followed the instructions again. This time it worked with no issues. Are newer versions of mysql not supported, or are there alternate instructions for these newer versions?
Sorry, I spend 99% of my time with Unix-like systems and quote "my.cnf" by habit when MySQL is mentioned.
my.ini is for Windows based systems, but the principle is the same (I have a sneaking memory that the files actually contain exactly the same text!). If you change the my config and the database fails to start, you need to look at that, and the best way is to check the database logs - they will almost certainly say exactly what is wrong.
(One thing I would appreciate across the entire field of computing is a "logging AI" that writes improved logs - rather than "I'm not starting the server because there's something iffy on line 65", something that says "Nic edited the file and he appears to be completely incapable of typing innnodb with the right number of n's in it in line 65".)
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
