MySQL Question

Connect to MySQL Data Source in PHPStorm

I'm using an IDE "Phpstorm" with "wampserver". i want to connect with MySQL data source, but i'm getting a problem:

Connection to MySQL - DatabaseName@localhost failed: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:366)

I also downloaded
mysql-connector-java-gpl-5.1.29.msi
and installed it, but I'm still getting some problems.

Answer

When I had this issue, there was a section of the Data Sources and Drivers Dialogue box that said "Driver Files" I expanded it and there was a link to download driver files.

I clicked it - and after a few seconds (with no obvious visual progress indicator) the message changed to say using MySQL drivers.

After that it worked.
