    Coldfusion 11 java.sql.SQLException (Missing MySQL 5 driver)

    tjguida Level 1

      I just installed Coldfusion 11 on a new Windows 7 build. Additionally installed the latest version of WAMP (to develop my databases).

      I created a datasource, and used MySQL5 for my driver.  When i try to connect my database (created in WAMP) i get the following error:

       

      Connection verification failed for data source: myTestdb java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver available for myTestdb, please check the driver setting in resources file, error: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver available for myTestdb, please check the driver setting in resources file, error: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver.  Any suggestions?

       

      I searched the web, and all the solutions are extremely confusing.  Does anyone have a straight forward solution?
