openmrs 2.1.4 wizard error unable to create database


(Solon Solano) #1

New to openmrs, can anyone assist? The configure openmrs wizard (step 6), gives the following error:

Unable to create the database. The password might be incorrect or the database is not started.

???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.???

I know this doesn’t solve your blocker; have you had a chance of using the openmrs-sdk. It’s the best and most appropriate tool for settingup openmrs.

Maybe to address your issue, can you share the full error logs from your servlet container using pastebin.com

Thank you for the information. Using openmrs-sdk was a huge help!
