PostgreSQL is no supported

Unfortunatelly PostgreSQL is not supported on Resume Editor, because MySQL functionality is hard coded into its source code. We must make changes to this Addon's Source Code soon as possible in future if i4ware Software customers wants Resume Editor to work in PostgreSQL.

Prepare the external MySQL database to your Confluence before installing a plugin

Do I need to install MySQL connector?

Yes. MySQL J-connector is not bundled in Confluence so you need to install it to ./lib-folder.

Edit server.xml file

In ./conf/server.xml file:

<Host name="localhost" debug="0" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="false">
 
                <Context path="" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false">
                    <!-- Logger is deprecated in Tomcat 5.5. Logging configuration for Confluence is specified in confluence/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties -->
                    <Manager pathname="" /> <-- Find this...
... Add this after
<Resource
name="jdbc/careers"
auth="Container"
type="javax.sql.DataSource"
driverClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"
url="jdbc:mysql://localhost/careers?autoReconnect=true"
username="careers"
password="password"
maxActive="25"
maxIdle="5"
maxWait="10000"
/>

Import SQL file (on command line or with phpMyAdmin)

Restart Confluence now.
