Description

Maybe this is not so relevant since my system's so old, but I had to run "pip install MySQL-python" in order for Django 1.4 to run "python manage.py syncdb" successfully when trying to use mySQL. Thought that might be nice to add to the documentation if there are issues running Django with MySQL.

  • Easy pickings set
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted
  • Type changed from Uncategorized to Cleanup/optimization

The need for a database adapter is documented here: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/install/?from=olddocs#get-your-database-running

However there's just a link to the sourceforge page for MyQSL-python, not to actual installation instructions. We can improve this.

We decided to just give the name of the package that's pip-installable, since we couldn't find a page on the Internet that explains how to install MySQLdb, and the README is as unfriendly as it gets.
