Could not find driver with class name: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver


we are having problems to install jira, after make the installation, and before the wizard on web browser, we place mysql-connector-java-5.1.31.bin.jar in the folder JIRA/lib, but it continues saying that it can't connect to data base.

We look for it, but no idea how to continue.

We are using xampp, is it compatible?
