Python interface to MySQL
This is a fork of MySQLdb1.
This project adds Python 3 support and bug fixes. I hope this fork is merged back to MySQLdb1 like distribute was merged back to setuptools.
You may need to install the Python and MySQL development headers and libraries like so:
sudo apt-get install python-dev default-libmysqlclient-dev# Debian / Ubuntu
sudo yum install python-devel mysql-devel# Red Hat / CentOS
brew install mysql-connector-c# macOS (Homebrew) (Currently, it has bug. See below)
On Windows, there are binary wheels you can install without MySQLConnector/C or MSVC.
Note on Python 3 : if you are using python3 then you need to install python3-dev using the following command :
sudo apt-get install python3-dev # debian / Ubuntu
sudo yum install python3-devel # Red Hat / CentOS
Note about bug of MySQL Connector/C on macOS
See also: https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=86971
Versions of MySQL Connector/C may have incorrect default configuration options that cause compilation errors when
mysqlclient-python is installed. (As of November 2017, this is known to be true for homebrew's
mysql-connector-c and official package)
mysql_config resolves these issues as follows.
# on macOS, on or about line 112: # Create options libs="-L$pkglibdir" libs="$libs -l "
# Create options libs="-L$pkglibdir" libs="$libs -lmysqlclient -lssl -lcrypto"
An improper ssl configuration may also create issues; see, e.g,
brew info openssl for details on macOS.
Install from PyPI
pip install mysqlclient
NOTE: Wheels for Windows may be not released with source package. You should pin version
requirements.txt to avoid trying to install newest source package.
