I'm trying to connect to a MySQL database using hibernate.
I'm testing the connection using this :
My wamp is installed on port number 80, my database name is hibernate_test, both my username and password are "ingenius".
I installed the mysql-connector-java-5.1.0-bin jar
I enabled remote Access to MySQL and WAMP Server by editing the c:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.17\conf\httpd.conf file :
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
Allow from all
change your jdbc url to
and you should be through, as mysql's default port in 3306
