AW: [opencms-dev] Installation Help (Yet another resourcebroker e rror)

Hi Kelvin,

maybe the problem is that the database connection 
to your database server can't be established because the user has 
not the appropriate rights to connect from the 
system where OpenCms is running to the database server?
Look at the user table of MySQL if the ocmuser you use
is allowed to connect from the OpenCms system host.
You can also see the section 7 (security) in the installation manual
how to add a user to the user table of MySQL.
This is certainly just a guess, hope it's helpful.

Regards, Michael

Before you sigh and go "Yet ANOTHER one...", I've
b) searched the archives


Downloaded I've followed the instructions in
install.html to the letter. The only deviation I have up to Step 4, is that
after Tomcat (4.0.1) has unpacked opencms.war, I modified
web-inf/config/, changing the jdbc url from localhost to
that of my database server. That's ok right?

Launching my browser to access http://localhost:8080/opencms/ocsetup
redirects to http://localhost:8080/opencms/ocsetup/index.ocjsp, and Tomcat
returns HTTP Status 503 - Servlet jsp is currently unavailable.

log/opencms.log is empty.

Changing the url to http://localhost:8080/opencms/ocsetup/index.jsp, Tomcat

No surprises here. It's pretty much everyone on the mailing list faced with
installation issues has been getting...Tried searching the archives to no
avail. Most of the relevant messages are pretty dated.

Does anyone have any clue? Would appreciate the help.
