MTA MySQL is an alternative to the default ml_mysql module provided by the MTA team. It is available for Windows and GNU/Linux and provides the source code.

Note: From version 0.4 it supports both DP2.3 and 1.0 servers.



32 bit: Copy 32 bit mta_mysql.dll into the MTA San Andreas\server\mods\deathmatch\modules\ directory.
(You might also need to install 32 bit VS2013 Runtime Redist)

64 bit: Copy 64 bit mta_mysql.dll into the MTA San Andreas\server\x64\modules\ directory.
(You might also need to install 64 bit VS2013 Runtime Redist)

Then, add the following line in mtaserver.conf:

  <module src="mta_mysql.dll" />


32 bit: Copy 32 bit into the mods/deathmatch/modules/ directory.

64 bit: Copy 64 bit into the x64/modules/ directory.

Then, add the following line in mtaserver.conf:

  <module src="" />

To fix MODULE: Unable to find modules/ ( cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)! copy into /usr/lib (32 bit, 64 bit)

If you experience an error on Unix systems: Try to add port and socket parameters to your mysql_connect.

Handler functions

Result managing functions

Version 0.5 calling method

From version 0.5 onwards you can call all this module functions, except mysql_connect and mysql_null, as if they are methods of an object.

For example, having a valid MySQL handler, you can do handler:query ( "SELECT * FROM table" ) instead of mysql_query ( handler, "SELECT * FROM table" ).

Function aliases

A function alias is a second name for a function, which makes calling any of the original name or the alias have the same result. The new aliases introduced in version 0.5 are:

  • result:num_rows() is the same as result:numrows()
  • result:num_fields() is the same as result:numfields()
  • result:free_result() is the same as result:free()
