Mysql + Ruby


I’m trying to install the mysql module but I can’t. I’m installing by
the RubyGems… but happens the following error:

Select which gem to install for your platform (

  1. mysql 2.7.3 (mswin32)
  2. mysql 2.7.1 (mswin32)
  3. mysql 2.7 (ruby)
  4. mysql 2.6 (ruby)
  5. Skip this gem
  6. Cancel installation

Successfully installed mysql-2.7.3-mswin32

(continuing with the rest of the installation)

Hi. I’ve also had this problem. It seems that there is a problem with
the mysql gem documentation. However from my experience, the gem itself

Hope this helps
