Know Issue: MySQL 5.6 not yet supported

We do not yet support MySQL v5.6.


If you are using MySQL v5.6, and are getting an error message, it is most likely due to the fact that this version of MySQL needs a new jar file. 


We have an internal case open to address this issue in a future release. Our recommendation at this point is for you to use an earlier version of MySQL.  We actually haven't tested yet with 5.5, but have several customers who have been using it without issue.

  • A workaround is available for using MySQL 5.6.  Please note that using this workaround is done at your own risk since we don't yet support MySQL 5.6.

    1. Make note of your driver change since upgrading or migrating Collaborator may revert back to the old driver and/or cause conflictions.


    2. Stop the "ccollab-server" service.


    3. Remove the MySQL JDBC driver that's included with our install (INSTALL_DIR\tomcat\lib\mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar).


    4. Obtain the 5.1.28 version of the MySQL JDBC driver (mysql-connector-java-5.1.28-bin.jar) and place it in the directory listed above.  (Please note: you may try running later versions of this driver if the specified version isn't available for download.)


    5. Start the "ccollab-server" service.
