After installing node.js and sequelize.js, and running a basic test, the message “You need to install mysql package manually” is displayed.
I’ve tried searching the web and Stackoverflow for the cause of this message.
I have installed:
- mysql server version 5.5.31-0ubuntu0.13.04.1
- node v0.10.5
- sequelize.js v1.6.0
You need to install the
mysql npm module:
npm install mysql
The reason sequelize doesn’t have the mysql module as its own dependency is because it can be used with other databases such as postgres or sqlite.
