Now we have to setup Tigase database. From the Start menu run the MySQL console and enter all commands below finishing them with <ENTER>:

  1. Create the database:

    mysql>create database tigasedb;
  2. Add database user:

    mysql> GRANT ALL ON tigasedb.* TO tigase_user@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'tigase_passwd';
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON tigasedb.* TO tigase_user@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'tigase_passwd';
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON tigasedb.* TO tigase_user IDENTIFIED BY 'tigase_passwd';
  3. Load Tigase database schema:

    mysql> use tigasedb;
    mysql> source c:/Program Files/Tigase/database/mysql-schema.sql;

When the system is up and running you can connect with any XMPP client (Psi for example) to your server to see if it is working.
