ok first sop tomcat , close the DB connection you opened via commandline , and restart tomcat again , and feed in the right root user password
@mozzy Have re-started the machine, started tomcat a fresh. So should I begin the installation when db is down
yes now just start mysql , but dont make any connection via commandline , just ensure mysql is running
@mozzy should I enter password for the root or for the user in the installation
root password or user password
password for root account (user) of mysql . the one you used to connect to mysql
I think there should be some changes that may need to made in the openmrs run properties that are created with in the tomcat folder located at [C:\Program Files\Dev\Tools\Toomcat9\webapps\openmrs]
can you try to share the server logs ?? which version of mysql are you running ??
@mozzy Mysql-Version 220.127.116.11
we currently suppoert Msql 5.7, can you first downgrade your MYsql version to 5.7 ?? see https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Step+by+Step+Installation+for+Developers
Does it mean losing all my projects developed . Or
If thats the case am gone uninstall and install Mysql 5.7 just now. I think that was the problem surely. Thanks @mozzy for not giving up on me
well , you can backup all that data in a separate file , and import it again in another instance of mysql
@mozzy Thats what have done! Have exported them all my projects and stored them in a folder though am worried of whether Mysql supports backward compatibility!
there is information online were you can just export your database and then import it to a different mysql instance and no worries about the backward compatibility!
Are you progressing @kdaud?
