The config file is read and interpreted sequentially, which basically means
that you can place any option anywhere you like as long as a plugin has been
loaded before it's configured (i.e. you need to have LoadPlugin before the
corresponding Plugin section).

collectd 3.x logs to syslog only.

This looks like libmysqlclient has not been found during the build process and
the read function (which collectd the data) has been disabled. If you compiled
collectd yourself, please check the output of configure to see if libmysql has
been available (there is a summary at the end).
