I use MySQL 5.6 and Driver 3.1.14, when start Apache there are issues:
Unknown Element Input
org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp.SQLNestedException: Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'now()' at line 1)
I put the log files for your reference. Thanks
For best results, use the Firefox browser..
