https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/sql-driver.html#qmysql currently asks the user to install MySQL 8.0 followed by its C connector.
However, as of MySQL 188.8.131.52, the C API is not separately installable anymore; it comes bundled with the server . The default folders to use are:
- MYSQL_INCDIR="C:/Program Files/MySQL/MySQL Server 8.0/include"
- MYSQL_LIBDIR="C:/Program Files/MySQL/MySQL Server 8.0/lib"
- MySQL 8.0 doesn't provide 32-bit C libraries
The Qt docs refer to MySQL 6.1 which doesn't exist (Ignore that; the C connector has a different version numbering system )
(Please double-check this information before updating the docs. It's my first time building the MySQL plugin for Qt)
