libmysqlclient.so.16 cannot open shared object file


Recommended Posts

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?
