Hi,

I am getting a mysql error while running a ruby file on my system
(Windows):

I have Ruby 1.8.6 and Mysql Server 5.0 installed. I also have gone
through google:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/436980/has-anyone-successfully-connected-to-mysql-from-ruby

but it did not help. Do I need to make any configuration for this?

Thanks in advance

Can you verify if following things are in proper place.

1. Are you able to connect to mysql otherwise on your system.
2. Have you done $gem install mysql
3. Copy libmySQL.dll from MYSQL_INSTALL/bin forlder to RUBY_INSTALL/
bin folder
3. Verify database.yml has your password

Thanks for your reply Vipin,

I am able to connect to Mysql through command prompt and mysql query
browser.

Also, I am able to connect to a remote system by mysql query browser
tool.
I have copied ibmySQL.dll from MYSQL_INSTALL/bin forlder to
RUBY_INSTALL/bin folder

I have mysql gem installed 2.7.1

but it still doesn't work.

The message said, update your MySQL client, reverify your conf file, and try again. What MySQL version have you?

Hi Gerardo,
I am using "MYSQL Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77, for Win32 (ia32)"

Another strange thing I noticed is I am able to run a rails(2.2.2)
application here, without any issue.
