missing plugins dir - mysql

Postby gulluva » 24. April 2017 19:57

Hi

I've been trying to add a user account in mysql and keep getting following error:

Error
SQL query:


SHOW PLUGINS SONAME LIKE '%_password_check%'
MySQL said: Documentation

#1018 - Can't read dir of 'C:\xampp\mysql\lib\plugin\' (errno: 2 "No such file or directory")

There is no lib directory in mysql in my installation

Can anyone help

Hi,

Create the folder C:\xampp\mysql\lib\plugin\ manually.
That should fix this issue.

Best wishes,
Altrea
