      What's missing to install correctly my jboss portal?

      Thanks

          The userguide says that i have to create an sql table called jbossportal. But, in what directory should the database be located? Ie, the sql database that i created with the command in mysql program:

          create database jbossportal
          


          is saved in the directory C:\Program Files\mysql\data\jbossportal. So, i don't understand how jboss AS would retrieve my database. Should i put the database files created in mysql in any specific directory of the jboss AS?

          And, should i've my sql running before trying to start jboss AS, that would run jboss portal?

          Thanks

            I just followed the JBoss Portal User Guide. Everything worked fine, the only thing was that I needed to explicit configure the hibernate dialect as stated in section 2.5.4.

            And, should i've my sql running before trying to start jboss AS, that would run jboss portal?


            Yes, JBoss Portal creates all database tables when starting up if they don't already exist.

              I've read the userguide many times but i can't install jboss portal.

              Can anybody explain me what should i do, related to the databases, to install properly my jboss portal? I asking if anybody could give me a detailed example of how to configure the database (mysql, or hsqldb) to run jboss portal. Can you post any xml files that is related to the configuration of the databases?

              Thanks

                  pedrosacosta,
                  Did you use the bundled package of jboss-portal-2.0.1RC1-jboss-4.0.2 for this or install them seperately to get them to work?

                  I'm using the above with MySQL 5.0, mysql-connector-java-3.1.11 on a Linux redhat 4 system but still running into this.
                  I have also been through the install instructions many times.
                  any pointers on what you did much appreciated, thanks so much.

                      If you are installing on MySQL5, the driver is a buggy mess, so please read this article to configure on that version: http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=AvoidMySQL5DataTruncationErrors

                        The problem was so stupid. I forgot to start mysql.

                        The anders.hedstrom didn't give me any answer. I found it alone.
