7. Log out from the MySQL prompt by typing the "quit" command.
Setup Configuration Files
1. Edit the default database configuration defined in the
master-datasources.xml file located at
$GREG_HOME/repository/conf/datasources directory of the deployed registry instance as below. Both the database configurations in

Replace these settings with your own custom values:
The database configuration options
- url - The URL of the database.
