MySQL Database connector not working!!

Postby the.rahul » 08 Oct 2011, 11:23


I have a remote Server which runs on RHEL 5.5 and has MySQL 5.1, Smartfox PRO 1.6. When the <DatabaseManager active="true"> parameter is FALSE, the SFS Service runs successfully on the Server. However, as soon as the value is TRUE, the service stops.

The config.xml looks something like this:

<DatabaseManager active="true">











I've tried most of the steps discussed in this forum regarding this, namely:

- Downloaded another version of MySQL connector from the MYSQL website
- Added the location to the file
- Added the necessary line in wrapper.conf
- Tried "export set CLASSPATH=/usr/smartfox/SFS_PRO_1.6.0/jre/lib/ext/mysql- connector-java-5.1.5-bin.jar:$CLASSPATH "
- the MySQL driver is inside the SFSPRO destination/jre/lib/ext folder

Are there any other steps that I need to follow? I am new to Smartfox.

Thanks in advance...

Could you please provide us the error dump provided in the log after unabling to start smartfoxserver? They will be located in {path to SFS}\Server\logs\
