Hi, @SM_Ehsan -

I’ve had this issue on my local machine while working with MySQL.

This is what has worked for me - though I can’t guarantee it’ll work on your computer.

gem install mysql2 -v '0.5.3' -- --with-ldflags=-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib --with-cppflags=-I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include

thank you for your replay. now this error is showing.
