Hi Everyone,

I am facing the following problem of connector Could you please suggest me some solution

Thanks and Regards, Aditya Chaudhari

Am running the current snapshot version of the OpenMRS reference application on MySQL version 8.0.20

I am running installing mysql version 5.6 and in that it automatically downloads all those products in which the connector is failing

Can you try the latest version of MySQL?

okay i will try

But i would also recommend version 5.6 because i struggled with other versions for many days until i accepted someone’s advice and the server ran smoothly and successfully @adityac1305

All versions from 5.6 to the latest (8) should work fine with the master branch of the platform.

When did you last update your openmrs-core code?

I did not update the openmrs code anytime

All you need is update your code with the latest upstream changes, compile, and run again.

Could you please tell me how to do that ?
