Distance in meters between two points

I know that the MySql has GIS support for some time. However just now I tried to use it.
I tried the most basic GIS function, the distance between two points. Looking at the documentation I found the glength, however this function returns the distance in degree. Looking further I found the udf functions distance_sphere() and distance_spheroid(), however I tried to compile to MySql 5.6 and I got a lot of errors.
So my question is, how can I calculate the distance in meter between two points on MySql 5.6?

Many thanks
