tomcat 6 / mysql 5 wont connect - jdbc driver loads - tested mysql connection

Hello,
I am trying to get JIRA to connect to mysql / tomcat 6.

I ensured I have the latest version of mysql, tomcat 6, and jdbc driver.

I can connect to the database using the user in my dbconfig.xml

I have verified the jdbc driver is loaded properly (via the catalina.out log)

I have verified that the username / password / host are correct in dbconfig.xml, yet I still receive the following error at the end of the startup sequence (Tomcat never reports it has started properly).

2012-06-27 11:27:31,554 main ERROR [NoModule] Error getting datasource via DBCP: JdbcDatasourceInfo{uri='jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/jiradb?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF8&sessionVariables=storage_engine=InnoDB', driverClassName='com.mysql.jdbc.Driver', username='jiradbuser', password='********', isolationLevel='null', connectionProperties=null, connectionPoolInfo=ConnectionPoolInfo{maxSize=8, minSize=2, maxWait=60000, sleepTime=300000, lifeTime=600000, deadLockMaxWait=600000, deadLockRetryWait=10000, validationQuery='select 1', minEvictableTimeMillis=60000, timeBetweenEvictionRunsMillis=300000}}

What is even stranger is that if I access http://localhost:8080/admin, nothing comes up. I haven't seen this happen where one webapp interferes with the standard admin webapp.

All suggestions are appreciated.

you might want to look at this : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/JIRA+Does+Not+Start

and remove any special characters from your database passwords

Hi ZippyZ,

Do you use the standalone distribution of JIRA, or do you deploy the webapp in an existing tomcat?

If you deploy in an existing tomcat, do you have other webapps running in this tomcat?

Stéphane

Also, which version of Java are you using? Java 7 throws similar errors for DB connections with JIRA so you need to use Java 6.

Andrew.

Pretty commercial soft!

Why not check the password during installation?
