Recently I was working on a new project and decided to use mysql instead of postgresql with Ruby on Rails. As usual, I started my project with
rails new . --database=mysql. Everything was fine until I got stuck while installing the
Error log is as shown here.

Make sure that `gem install mysql2 -v '0.5.3' --source 'https://rubygems.org/'` succeeds before bundling.
As suggested by the error, I tried
gem install mysql2 -v '0.5.3'. But this didn’t fix the error for me. After going through few stackoverflow questions, I found a solution for mac.
It turns out the error had something to do with
openssl. So finally this command fixed the error.
gem install mysql2 -v '0.5.3' -- --with-ldflags=-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib --with-cppflags=-I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include
