Delphi: Missing libmysql.dll to connect to MariaDB

Last Modified: 2019-03-19
I get this error message, when I want to connect to MariaDB via FireDAC.
Where can I download the needed dll's?

I have downloaded the "MariaDB Connector/C x.x Series"  zip-file from this website https://downloads.mariadb.org/. But the dll's were not there.
My program is a 32-Bit application

You could also download Mysql from Oracle and install it. Then you will find libmysql.dll in the "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\lib" Folder (Windows), maybe with different version number.

You could simply copy the dll into the application's exe Folder, if youd don't like to change the search path.
