Yes, I have MariaDB installed (I dropped the openmrs schema created via the legacy webapp a few days ago).
I changed the standalone runtime properties like this:
But when running the standalone it throws an exception:
Opening MySQL connection to create openmrs/test users
Exception in thread "main" com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLNonTransientConnectionException: Could not create connection to database server. Attempted reconnect 3 times. Giving up.

After that I created the user openmrs password test with the HeidiSQL interpreter but no success, same exception.
Even if I put connection user root and pwd in the properties file, it keeps using openmrs/test … apparently.
