Issue with Percona Audit Plugin for MySQL 5.5.38

Hi ,

I tried to install the Percona Audit plugin for MySQL 5.5.38 and it is showing me the below error

mysql> install plugin audit_log soname ‘’;

ERROR 1123 (HY000): Can’t initialize function ‘audit_log’; Plugin initialization function failed.

First I modifed the my.cnf file with the follwoing variables like “audit_log_policy=All, audit_log_rotate_on_size=1G, audit_log_format=CSV,etc.,”. and then tried to install the plugin as above which is throwing the error.

Here are the errors from the MySQL error log file

[ERROR] Plugin ‘audit_log’ registration as a AUDIT failed.

[ERROR] Plugin ‘audit_log’ init function returned error.

Can anyone please guide me how to comeup with a solution for this issue.
