Hi Cabral,

make sure you had this file in respective identified place “mysql-connector-java-5.1.30.jar”,
if you are using tomcat place this jar file at - apache-tomcat-8.5.15\lib folder.


yh iam using tomcat but iam asking why it only doesnt on Admin module, if is working fine for others modules?

I have placed “mysql-connector-java-5.1.30.jar” in the apache-tomcat\lib folder but the insuce still the same

It should work, or else try at location - apache-tomcat-8.5.15\webapps\flowable-admin\WEB-INF\lib

ok tanks brow i have just did “at location - apache-tomcat-8.5.15\webapps\flowable-admin\WEB-INF\lib” and re-start apache every it is working fine!!! Tanks by the help.

I think the problem was because on Admin module mysql-connector-java-x-x-x.jar is not being downloaded and moved automatic to apache-tomcat-8.5.15\webapps\flowable-admin\WEB-INF\lib folder! and it sould be done manualy
