libmysql.dll (32-Bit)

Post by Dravion » 2022-08-17 19:00

To support hMailServer Users wishing to install hMailServer with MySQL (64-Bit or 32-Bit) i add the required libmysql.dll file which is required to
install hMailServer successfully. Because of historic reasons, hMailServer went a while to a closed source model but the license libmysql.dll is redistributed demanded it can only redistributed as part of a OpenSource application. However: Since hMailServer5.x is OpenSource again, it is allowed to redistribute libmysql.dll again

Zip contains:
*The License file
*libmysql.dll (MySQL 5.37 32-Bit) which can be used for 32-Bit and 64-MySQL versions also for MySQL v8 to let hMailServer connect.

Just copy the libmysql.dll file into your hMailServer\bin folder at the Database creation step if you get the Error message "libmysql.dll"
is required but cannot be found. Stay in the Installer, copy the libmysql in the hMailServer\bin folder, switch back to setup, press
"previous" button and the "next" button again - the Error will be gone and the installation will successfully finish.
