Installing MySQL is a first step. You also need to download a JDBC
driver for MySQL, which you can do from the MySQL Web site:
Once you have downloaded the JDBC driver, you will find a JAR file with
a name something like "mysql-connector-java-5.0.8-bin.jar". This is the
JAR file that should be renamed to "driver.jar" and placed in the
Protege installation directory. This process of saving your project in

The screenshots are outdated, but the text is helpful. Protege will an
display error message if you try to save your project in a database, but
do not have everything configured properly.
