With thanks to friends here who helped me install and start using LC on a
headless Linux box. I've now another little problem... my stack tries and
fails to connect to a MySQL database.
When it attempts to call revOpenDatabase, it throws error 219, "error in
function handler". I take it that this means it can't find or hasn't loaded
the revdb external.
I've installed livecodecommunity-9.6.1.x86_64, and I launch it with
Community.x86_64 -ui <mystack.livecode>
I can see revdb.so and dbmysql.so are in the Externals directory. Is there
something explicit I need to do to load these?
