Did you set a password for MySQL as you installed it?

@reagan you are using a wrong url (jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/@DBNAME@ ) .have you created any database and what is its name?

  • you need to ensure you have installed MySQL 5.6 database and its running.

  • Now by default , MySQL creates a default user root, but with no password.

  • you’ll ensure , you create a password for the root user in your MySql , and use the same password to setup the server database connection

Another option is creating another user in your MySQL other than root, and create a password for it.

Then instead of using the default user root in setting up your server database connection , use the other user you created in your MySQL with the corresponding password.

Yes I did…however when am running the server setup I don’t get the option to put it…secondly I have MySQL 5.7 and not 5.6 as seen in the set up…

I read thru one of the discussions and it indicated that by default in the url…it will create a database using the name I used for server…otherwise I tried that(creating a database which I tried to use in the url and it still failed…

:slightly_smiling_face: , well it appears as though the command line is not responding , when you reach the option of putting in the password. but you just continue to type in the right password

yes , the default URL provided is fine. just feed in the right coresponding password for the database user you have used which is by default root.

That’s right @mozzy just continue to type the password @reagan you gave for the DB and then press enter so you can have it connect to the database, don’t bother about not seeing the typing and then tell us how far it goes.

@herbert24, its fine if he uses the default url generated by the SDK. the only problem comes with putting in a wrong/empty password for the Db-User

thank you so much devs…am now up and running…the issue was that the command line was just not showing my password as i typed but it has connected after i typed it anyway…respect and cheers…:smiley:

Hello All,

Thank you for the support already provided to @reagan about this issue. I am having the same problem although applying all what is said here, I do not get it yet. I am new to OpenMRS but a fan of Open Source projects and I am interested in contributing to OpenMRS.

I have created a user as dba with password and provide the user full privileges but I still can not set up the server.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Please here it is the pastebin: https://pastebin.com/ahczjwbv

Well @pierr if you have that version of mysql 5.6, you should first start it, and then stop it , am sure this is like refreshing it. then run the server as usuall following the above instructions given.

Did you mean to say that the user in mysql server is ‘dba’ ?..if yes then that should be what u use otherwise I am seeing in ur logs that ur using the default ‘root’ …confirm via command line or gui/workbench what ur credentials are…and hope ur using version 5.6 or 5.7 of MySQL…and also do what @sharif has suggested…check in services and see if the server has been started(do this by hitting the windows button and type services and hit enter then look for MySQL and see if it has been started-this is for windows on)

Thank you @sharif and @reagan ! I got it work by installing workbench to visualize mysql and I figure out everytime I set a password via command line it did not change the root password because I did not provide a password having at least 8 characters with all the other conditions. Once I changed the root password and the dba password using Mysql Workbench, I was able to move on. Thank you !
