I'm having problems configuring jForum 2.1.4 on a server running Tomcat 4.0.6 and MySQL 4.0.20 and I get the following error:
net.jforum.exceptions.DatabaseStartupException: Error while trying to start the database: java.sql.SQLException: Server connection failure during transaction.
Attempted reconnect 3 times. Giving up.
The database, hostname, port, username and password are correct. Any ideas?
I'd be very grateful of any information, perhaps something I haven't checked. I can get it to work fine on a development server using Tomcat 5.5 and MySQL 4.1, but it does not work on the production server.
Thanks a million!
