      MTA Forums maintenance is completed, although some automatic time-heavy tasks are still in process and will be finished eventually in background. Expect some features such as Forum Search to not display all results until all processes are finished. Please let us know if you spot a forum feature that worked correctly before the maintenance but does not work anymore now. Thanks. --MTA Team

libmysqlclient.so.16 cannot open shared object file

4 posts in this topic

1.4 MTA Linux server requires libmysqlclient.so.16 when you use the internal MySql functions such as dbConnect etc.

If you get the error: "libmysqlclient.so.16: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory", you can solve it by downloading the correct libmysqlclient.so.16 below:

For MTA standard server (on 32 or 64 bit Linux):


For MTA experimental x64 server (on 64 bit Linux):


and copying the file into /usr/lib/

I have the this problem only it's saying its libmysqlclient.so.15 instead of .16.

I downloaded the .16 and put it in usr/lib and it still gives the error.

I restarted my server and still, the error.

What do I do?
