Hello,
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

Firstly make sure that you have downloaded the 32 bit version of Mariadb. I downloaded the file from https://downloads.mariadb.org/interstitial/mariadb-10.3.13/win32-packages/mariadb-10.3.13-win32.zip/from/http%3A//mirrors.coreix.net/mariadb/ and the required file is in the lib folder. You need to make sure that you have placed this (and any other required libraries) on your search path.

The link above may change for you, but essentially I just downloaded the 32 bit zip.
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.
