Issue connecting to MySQL DB using perl

Postby DCB » 12. November 2019 08:46


I am attempting to connect to the mysql database installed with xampp (ver 7.3.6) using the perl installed with xampp and am running into this issue:

Code: Select all
install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't load 'C:/Orbis/xampp/perl/vendor/lib/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.dll' for module DBD::mysql: load_file:The specified module could not be found at C:/Orbis/xampp/perl/lib/ line 190.
 at (eval 4) line 3.
Compilation failed in require at (eval 4) line 3.
Perhaps a required shared library or dll isn't installed where expected
 at line 40.

everything I have read so far appears to be several years old now, and says to install a different version of perl
- is this really the only way to fix this issue?
