SDK Missing runtime-properties file

I’m trying to setup the SDK locally (macOS) and everything works until I go to localhost:8080/openmrs/initialsetup. I’m getting the following 2 issues:

  1. Unable to find properties file: /Users/USERNAME/openmrs/server/
  2. com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLNonTransientConnectionException: Could not create connection to database server

My understanding is that the runtime properties file (according to the SDK setup confluence page here) should be generated after I visit that URL, but it never gets generated.

Also, I know I can edit the runtime-properties file to disable SSL, but the file never gets generated so I can’t disable it.

I can confirm that the database with the correct server name gets created when I run mvn openmrs-sdk:setup

Any tips?
