I think you should. Since you have no root access.
the following should solve the problem:
The dynamic linker (ld.so) does not know it's supposed to search for these shared libs in that directory. You have several options to resolve this:
- Add /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql to you LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
- copy the shared mysqlclient.so files into /usr/local/lib and run "ldconfig -v"
- Add the path /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql to /etc/ld.so.conf
You can use "ldd /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql" to verify that all shared libs are actually found.
