I am trying to connect Libreoffice to MariaDB databases.
I am using the following configuration
- Linux Mint 19.2,
- MariaDB - Server version: 10.4.6-MariaDB and have connected successfully
via the mysql command line, and via PHPMyAdmin to create databases, tables
and to successfully search these tables.
- LibreOffice Version: 126.96.36.199 Build ID: 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.10
- Java version openjdk 11.0.7 2020-04-14
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.7+10-post-Ubuntu-2ubuntu218.04)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.7+10-post-Ubuntu-2ubuntu218.04, mixed
- the JDBC connectors from either MySQL or MariaDB. These have included
from MySQL connector versions: 5.0.3, 5.1.36, 5.1.49 and MariaDB connector
versions: 1.5.9, 2.5.4, and 2.6.1. When these are configured in the Java
CLASSPATH, these drivers are loaded successfully.
Issues arise when attempting to create a new database within Libreoffice.
When I test connecting to a database, I get the following error message:
SQL Status: 08S01
Communications link failure
The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. The
driver has not received any packets from the server.
I am not sure what to test/check next. I have spent quite a while
searching for answers to this issue but have not yet turned up a solution.
Is anyone connecting to MySQL/MariaDB databases using Linux and JDBC
