I'v downloaded and installed the correct drivers for MYSQL using JDBC and tested it and the drivers load OK.

However, when I try to connect to my database, I keep getting the message..."incorrect database name"... The login I use is exactly what the manual says I'm supposed to type e.g.,
//localhost:3306/dbName, and I've tried every other variation, but nothing will let me connect!

I'm logging in as the "root" user, with the correct password as well.

Any help would be appreciated.

I fixed the problem. The wizard places the "//" in the code for me. I was putting it in also, so that caused trouble connecting!

No more help needed, thanks!
