Subject SV: MySQL Driver Problem on Win 2k
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT

I had the same problem when I had to run Tomcat as a Win2K service. In fact 
I posted the problem here but I didn't get any satisfactory answers until 
went to the docs. Now here's what you do:
1. Edit the "" file found in the conf directory of your 
Tomcat installation.

2. Add a line like this:
(where driver is the name of your MySQL driver). Make sure the jar file is 
located in the lib directory - it could be anywhere actually, but that is 
how mine is.

3. Make sure the "wrapper.tomcat_home" property is set correctly. Mine is: 

4. Restart the Tomcat service.

That's it!
