I seem to be unable to log in to my own jforums. The error I get is:
Oct 15 00:02:31 ERROR ExceptionWriter
Further info: trying to log on after awhile just gives me this:
My DB settings are correct. I can connect with the username/password using mysql ...
If I reinstall will jforums keep and use the existing database info?
An error has occurred.
For detailed error information, please see the HTML source code, and contact the forum Administrator.
Communications link failure due to underlying exception:

I found the duplicate jforum/WEB-INF/lib/mysql*jar and removed it. The same one exists in tomcat/common/lib.
Is there anything else you'd suggest I'd look at?
It was working fine for several weeks, then I changed the DB timeouts, and it hasn't worked since even though I changed the timeouts back.
My MySql timeouts are 300 seconds.
The jforum timeouts are 5000. I don't know if that is seconds or not. It must be shorter than the MySQL timeout. I changed the value to 200 just in case it is seconds but that didn't help.
I went through the 'forgot password' process, and that worked right up to the point where I log in, then the password is not valid.
