the luasql module is split into multiple “drivers”, each has its own package in LuaDist. You can use the mysql driver as follows once you install luasql-mysql:

local sql = require “luasql.mysql”

This is well documented[1] on the luasql project page.

The package is included in the current batteries release found on[2] so you just need to download that.
