I just did this myself today and it works (didn’t try with mysql, but shouldn’t be much different if you say you got the database connected and configured.)
Make sure you go to the /admin page and click “Initalize Database” before you try to do anything else.
Sorry for the inconvenience, this is about all the help I’ll be able to give right now, The project is going through some transitions to java ee 6 and the version in SVN is not supported right now. We should update with a message about this.
