[SOLVED] Totally new to this..Please help (must specify hostname/port correctly)

I keep getting this trying to connect to a Mysql db…

java.sql.SQLException: Must specify port after ‘:’ in connection string

PLease help?.. what am i doing wrong?

It sounds like you’ve mistyped the hostname or didn’t enter a port.

Can you double check the information you’re using to connect via the command line mysql command and see if the information works?

Yes, mistyped hostname… Thank you very much!!!:grinning:

I was having the same problem with corrent hostname but noticed that the " I was using when setting the parameter on docker was not the standard one, something with the keyboard replacement. Now it works fine. Thanks.
