'com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.MySQLNonTransientConnectionException' when Installing Confluence on MySQL on OS X 10.4 Due to MySQL Networking Configuration
Confluence does not start when connecting to MySQL. The following appears in the
com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.MySQLNonTransientConnectionException: Server connection failure during transaction. Due to underlying exception: 'java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused'.
MySQL is running with the --skip-networking option.
On OS X 10.4 Server, the MySQL Manager program turns off networking by default. This needs to be turned on in
/etc/mysqlManager.plist or in the MySQL Manager (if that option is available).
