Failed to connect to MySQL server as DBD::mysql module is not installed

ZyBeRZyBeR EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
Hi guys,

I've been using innobackupex on my MySQL production server for a few years with no issues, now though I've noticed it has stopped working.
I believe this has happened after a recent "apt-get upgrade", but I'm not sure as I just found out about the problem.

The server it self is an Ubuntu Server x64 running the following software.
- Kernel: 3.2.0-40-generic
- MySQL: 5.5.32
- XtraBackup: 2.1.4
- Perl: 5.14.2


This is the script I'm running.
#!/bin/sh

user=root
pass=*****
tmpdir=/media/data/tmp
file=$tmpdir/mysql-$(date +%A).tar.gz


### Start MySQL Backup ###
echo "$(date): Starting MySQL backup." >> /tmp/backup.log
/usr/bin/innobackupex --user=$user --password=$pass --no-timestamp --rsync $tmpdir/backup
/usr/bin/innobackupex --user=$user --password=$pass --apply-log --use-memory=1GB $tmpdir/backup

tar -zcvf $file $tmpdir/backup
rm -rf $tmpdir/backup
/usr/bin/scp $file [EMAIL="admin@*********.com"][email protected]*********.com[/EMAIL]:/share/MD0_DATA/Backup/bb-mysql-01/
rm $file

sync
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

echo "$(date): Backup completed." >> /tmp/backup.log



And here is the output.

What can be causing the issue?
As far as I can tell I'm running the latest stable version of all software, maybe there is some conflict there?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    After I ran a little Perl script ( perl -MDBD::mysql -e 'print $DBD::mysql::VERSION ) I noticed it complained about the ssl library not being installed.

    Odd that it's needed when I don't have ssl enabled on my MySQL server, but anyhow I installed the library to satisfy it.


    And now my backup seams to be working, at least it's running now, we'll see in a hour or so if it worked.
