	Hi Poojita

	There is no in the Github repository because it is a
source code repository.  One have to compile the code before using it.
There is no, nor either.	All the files are
source code.
	There is no mysql.lua (nor any other .lua file) because LuaSQL
is a binding that lets Lua communicate to database drivers.  Since these
drivers expose a C API (not a Lua API) the code is written in C.  Thus it
must have to be compiled before use :-)

	You are the right place.  Try compiling it (run 'make') and
install it ('make install').  You should take a look at the Makefile
and config files to check whether the paths are correct.

Dear Tomas,

Thank you for your reply.

I have a doubt regarding the libraries included in luasql package. When I downloaded the luasql-master zip file from Github (, it did not have library in <lua_package>/src which would be installed in the/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/luasql path.

Also, mysql.lua is not present in the package. I am attaching the screenshot of the Github page for your reference.

I looked for downloading separately, but found no luck.

I am in doubt, whether the above Github luasql is the right package for testing mysql db connectivity using lua.
Kindly share your thoughts.

Thanks for your time.

 	Hi Poojita

 	Check where the library ( have been installed. It should
be at /usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/luasql/

Hi Users,
 I have been learning Lua recently and trying to connect to a local MySQL =

Lua has been installed in my Linux machine at location /usr/local/

 Lua 5.2.3 Copyright (C) 1994-2013, PUC-Rio

I downloaded Luasql package from github and installed using makefile. The b=
elow path /usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/luasql contains

the below files related to MySQL.


When I try to run a sample mysql program I get the following error.

lua: testing.lua:3: module 'luasql.mysql' not found:

Request your kind support, as how to configure Lua to use luasql in connect=
ing to MySQL.
Thanks in advance..
