mysql – How to install Python MySQLdb module using pip?

Its easy to do, but hard to remember the correct spelling:

pip install mysqlclient

If you need 1.2.x versions (legacy Python only), use pip install MySQL-python

Note: Some dependencies might have to be in place when running the above command. Some hints on how to install these on various platforms:

Ubuntu 14, Ubuntu 16, Debian 8.6 (jessie)

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev libmysqlclient-dev

Fedora 24:

sudo dnf install python python-devel mysql-devel redhat-rpm-config gcc

Mac OS

brew install mysql-connector-c

if that fails, try

brew install mysql

Starting from a fresh Ubuntu 14.04.2 system, these two commands were needed:

 apt-get install python-dev libmysqlclient-dev
 pip install MySQL-python

Just doing the pip install by itself did not work.

First

pip install pymysql

Then put the code below into __init__.py (projectname/__init__.py)

import pymysql
pymysql.install_as_MySQLdb()

My environment is (python3.5, django1.10) and this solution works for me!

Hope this helps!!
