Error connecting to database

JIRA builds a connection string from the parameters you enter, and adds some stuff to it that you don't need to tell it.

I suspect that your password contains a character that needs escaping in that string, which breaks the string.

Try changing the password to something without any special characters in it - P3nGu!n for example.

Also, do NOT use root to connect to the database.  You should have a dedicated user with standard privileges on the database you're connecting to.  jira or jiradb are the usual names I use.
