Hi I've been going at this for literally hours now.

I've currently running my game server on a VPS (Ubuntu 14.04 x64).

This is where I currently am.

-Meta mod 1.10 -Sourcemod 1.5.4-git4078.tar.gz -SourceBans 1.4.11

I've successfully completed the web installation. Although i am having trouble getting the game server to contact the webserver.

This is the output of the log.

L 06/12/2014 - 09:29:02: [sourcebans.smx] Database failure: Could not find driver "mysql". See FAQ: http://www.sourcebans.net/node/20

That link is dead not very usefull. Some people say to install apt-get install lib32z1 which I did (Do i need to configure it anyway?) which did not work unfortunatly.

From the VPS I did manage to connect to my external mysql database using the mysql installed.

Is there anything else I should do?

My databases file. I enter image description here

  • Not sure if this might cause a conflict with cs-go but MySQL and SQLite are two different database systems.

This means the mysql extension is not running correctly. Check that the following file exists:


If it does, make sure it has execute-permissions (chmod u+x dbi.mysql.ext.so).

If that doesn't help, the next most common problem (from this thread) seems to be missing the 32-bit zlib library. Try installing it on your system:

32-bit Debian or Ubuntu: apt-get install zlib1g
64-bit Debian or Ubuntu: apt-get install lib32z1
32/64-bit Fedora: yum install zlib.i686
32/64-bit Mandriva: urpmi zlib1
32-bit SUSE: zypper install libz1
64-bit SUSE: zypper install libz1-32bit

If that doesn't work, try running ldd -d -r dbi.mysql.ext.so to search for missing dependencies, then google how to install the appropriate dependency for your system.

  • Hi thanks for you're help. Those first two steps did not work unfortunately. When I ran ldd -d -r dbi.mysql.ext.so this is the output. Sorry I don't really understand it, is there something here which I need to fix? i.imgur.com/LIsstxr.png

  • @jackdh That looks fine to me. I'm afraid I can't help you then. I suggest you post your issue here - someone there should be able to help. Jun 12, 2014 at 15:14
  • Could I ask do I need anything else from LAMP? as I only installed Mysql

  • No, you should only need MySQL. If you can access it from the VPS I don't think that's the issue. Jun 12, 2014 at 15:15
  • Anyway BlueRaja thank you so much for you're quick support I really appreciate it! - Last thing, the werid was when I had the webserver on the same box as the game it worked fine
