To install Connector/C++ from source, the following system requirements must be satisfied:
You must have the cross-platform build tool CMake (2.8.12 or higher is recommended; older versions may work).
You must have a C++ compiler that supports C++11.
Building Connector/C++ from source requires the client library from MySQL 5.7 (5.7.9 or higher) or MySQL 8.0 (8.0.11 or higher).
Typically, the MySQL client library is installed when MySQL is installed. However, check your operating system documentation for other installation options.
To specify where to find the client library, set the
CMake option appropriately at configuration
time as necessary (see
Section 4.6, “Connector/C++ Source-Configuration Options”).
To compile Connector/C++, the Boost C++ libraries are always needed. Boost 1.59.0 or newer must be installed. To obtain Boost and its installation instructions, visit the official Boost site.
After Boost is installed, use the
CMake option to indicate where the Boost
files are located (see
Section 4.6, “Connector/C++ Source-Configuration Options”):
cmake [other_options] -DBOOST_ROOT=/usr/local/boost_1_59_0
Adjust the path as necessary to match your installation.
