I can't seem to get 'create database' to work when my web app (as war file)
on server tries to connect to MySql on server.

Basically I have..

Then I do...

This works locally on my pc, when I connect to MySql installed on pc,
but not when on the server, connecting to MySql on the server.

Is there anything I can do?
