I had Jira working using a postgresql database, but as it was the only DB in postgres I made the (eventful) decision to switch to MySQL. I followed the setup instructions and specified a completely empty database, but now I receive the error message: "You have specified a database that is not empty, please specify an empty database. If you want to upgrade an existing installation, please follow these instructions instead." I ran config.sh and after entering the MySQL information, I ran its test and it worked fine. However, when I restart Jira it starts in the setup routine, and when I enter the identical MySQL information for the empty database, it fails with the above message. When I copy the saved version of dbconfig.xml for the postgresql database, Jira still starts in the setup routine. When the setup routine starts and I select "My own database" for the database connection, it is empty (as if it didn't read the dbconfig.xml file).
How can I get Jira running with either the old postgresql database or a new MySQL database?! Thanks in advance...
