Building MariaDB Connector/ODBC from Source

Installing MariaDB Connector/ODBC Build Dependencies

Before you can build MariaDB Connector/ODBC, you need to have the following tools installed:

  • cmake
  • git
  • a C compiler - (i.e. Visual Studio on Windows or gcc on Unix-like platforms)

There are no other build dependencies on Windows.

On Unix-like platforms, you also need to have the following tools installed:

  • make
  • UnixODBC - libraries and development headers

If you want your build to support TLS on Unix-like platforms, then you also need to have the following tools installed:

  • OpenSSL - libraries and development headers

Installing Build Dependencies on Linux

On Linux, you may need to run one of following commands to install these dependencies.

For example, the following command would install the necessary packages on RHEL, CentOS, and similar Linux distributions:

sudo yum install git cmake make gcc openssl openssl-devel unixODBC unixODBC-devel

And the following command would install the necessary packages on Debian, Ubuntu, and similar Linux distributions:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git cmake make gcc libssl-dev unixodbc odbcinst unixodbc-dev

Building MariaDB Connector/ODBC from the Git Repository

Cloning the MariaDB Connector/ODBC Git Repository

We recommend that you build from the git repository rather than from a source package.

If you are building from the git repository, then your next step would be to clone a local copy of the MariaDB Connector/ODBC source code from the git repository.

The git repository is available on GitHub: https://github.com/MariaDB/mariadb-connector-odbc

You can clone it by executing the git clone command like the following:

git clone https://github.com/MariaDB/mariadb-connector-odbc.git
cd mariadb-connector-odbc

If you want to build a specific revision or version of MariaDB Connector/ODBC, then you will need to checkout the specific branch or tag by executing the git checkout command like the following:

git checkout 3.0.8

This example will put your source tree into the 3.0.8 version state.

Building MariaDB Connector/ODBC

You can build MariaDB Connector/ODBC by executing the cmake command like the following:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCONC_WITH_UNIT_TESTS=Off -DCONC_WITH_MSI=OFF -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local .
cmake --build . --config RelWithDebInfo

Installing MariaDB Connector/ODBC

To install a freshly built MariaDB Connector/ODBC on Windows, execute the following:

msiexec.exe /i wininstall\mariadb-connector-odbc-3.0.8-win32.msi

Or to install it on Unix-like platforms, execute the following:

sudo make install

Building MariaDB Connector/ODBC from a Source Package

Building MariaDB Connector/ODBC from a source package is a bit different than building it from the git repoisitory. The source package comes without MariaDB Connector/C source code. And in order to build MariaDB Connector/ODBC, you need to download MariaDB Connector/C source separately, and then copy it into the 'libmariadb' subdirectory in the root of the MariaDB Connector/ODBC source tree. Other steps are all the same as for building from git checkout.

Also, it should be possible to build from source package using the MariaDB Connector/C headers and library installed on your system. You need to ensure that the appropriate MariaDB Connector/C version is installed. Most probably you will need to point your compiler and/or linker to the location of the MariaDB Connector/C headers and/or library. e.g.

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCONC_WITH_UNIT_TESTS=Off -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS_RELWITHDEBINFO="-I/usr/local/incude/mariadb -L/usr/local/lib" .
