I just configured Hybris for MYSQL and initialized the Hybris.
ant clean all
Please copy your custom database changes from project.properties to local.properties. I'm using Oracle db and the setting for Oracle are as below:
db.url=jdbc:oracle:thin:@127.0.0.1:1521:XE db.driver=oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver db.username=USER db.password=password db.tableprefix=
After these changes, kindly do ant clean all followed by ant initialize.
In case you still face issues, kindly check whether the Hybris version you're using is compatible with the version of MySQL.
