I am trying to get mysql to work with standalone with JIRA 4.3. I can connect to mysql on by linux box and I have a jiradb and jira use set up. Every time I edit my dbconfig.xml file with the my sql entries and restart JIRA i get a 404/tomcat not available. If I switch back to my dbconfig.xml file with the HSQL setttings i get back in. I am not sure if my file is setup right. Am i supposed to put an IP or hostname on the //mysqldbserver:3306 line?

Use the config script under /bin folder to setup the database. You can check the connectivity there. Ip address or hostname shouldn't matter!
