error installing openfire


i was trying to install openfire on centos 6.2, downloaded rpm, installed installed fine, installed mysql and created a database with userand password only for openfire.

the thing is , afte restarting openfire, i opened browser and hit http://localhsot:9090 to start webbased installer, in the second step it asked me for java mysql driver database name etc, i given it but it gives error message that it can not contact database check /var/logs/error.log, but i could nt find the path anyware. I also installed mysql-connector-java, still the same,

so finally i choosed embedded database rather than choosing external one in the second step. installed successfully,
difference beteen external and embedded database ? can i continuce using embeded database ? any thing goes wrong in future.
please show me installing openfire with mysql ??? please help me , i think it will have main steps like installing java connector and java related things only

please help me guiding me those steps...

thank you very much.

There's no issue using the embedded database.. but I suppose it depends on how many users you expect to support. Have you read this page? .. it may help:
