Hi everybody,

I've installed a redmine 2.3.1 on my webfaction account, but a few days ago I tried to access it and got the error:

/usr/lib64/libmysqlclient.so.18: version `libmysqlclient_16' not found

Is there something wrong? Do I have to upgrade some package to get it operational?

The problem was that a system update to MySQL broke compatibility with some libraries that were built against the earlier version of MySQL.

In this case, it was your mysql2 gem that was broken.

I've fixed it for you by uninstalling and reinstalling your mysql2 gem.

Hope that helps!

Ok, I reinstalled your mysql2 gem with the following commands:

cd ~/webapps/redmine/
export GEM_HOME=$PWD/gems
export RUBYLIB=$PWD/lib
export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH
gem uninstall mysql2
gem install mysql2 -v 0.3.11
./bin/restart
