Yep, sounds like you have a database connection problem...

Please post your roller.xml file here (blank out any passwords first)
and we'll take a look.

Did you put the MySQL JDBC driver jar in tomcat/common/lib?

confused about which sections I should alter in the roller.xml context file. The install guide
says to change the URL, but outside sites with their own install steps say to change the resource.
Does this also refer to the URL or does this refer to the name?

When I put it in the URL I get: "Cannot create JDBC driver of class 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver'
for connect URL 'C:\www\mysql5\data\roller'".
