MySQL Connection Error

When we try to install OpenMRS it appears this error:

???Error executing sql: create database if not exists ? default character set utf8 - Could not create connection to database server. Attempted reconnect 3 times. Giving up.???

Can you help us please?


The problem is that OpenMRS cannot connect to MySQL. Do you have a running MySQL instance? You can test this by trying to connect to MySQL using the mysql command-line tool or MySQL Workbench.
