problem connecting jira to mysql

Hi,

I'm trying to configure JIRA to use mysql.

I downloaded mysql connect driver (platform indpendent) from here http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j

And then uncompressed it.Then I opened .config.sh and configured it with my mysql db credentials.

 

After I click test connect. I get the following error :

 

Attempting to connect to 46.228.193.249:3306/customco_jira
*** Connection failed: Driver for the database MySQL not found. Ensure it is ins

 

Where is the problem?

Note :  I'm installing it on a centos server using SSH.

Make sure to move the driver to the folder <JIRA installation directory>/lib/ then restart the application.

You need to be very precise about what you do in the download/install steps.  You've said

> I downloaded mysql connect driver ... And then uncompressed it

Ok, but what about the other steps - did you find the driver file at the root of the uncompressed directory and copy/move it into the right place in the JIRA installation?

You will need copy the mysql connector jar file to the lib directory in JIRA installation folder.

Thank you all, SOLVED.

 

The problem was that, after uncompromising mysql driver, the result is folder, I copied this folder to the /LIB  directory, The solution is that I copied the jar file from the uncompressed file to the LIB directory

 

Thank you all again.
