On Python 2.6 and Mac OS X (10.5+):-
You must use the python2.6-all interpreter to use MySQLdb. See Bug #87704.
MySQLdb is an interface to the popular MySQL database server for Python. The design goals are:
- Compliance with Python database API version 2.0 [PEP-0249]
- Thread-friendliness (threads will not block each other)
MySQL-3.23 through 5.5 and Python-2.4 through 2.7 are currently supported. Python-3.0 will be supported in a future release. PyPy is supported.
MySQLdb is Free Software.
