MySQL Connector/Python available through the Python Package Index

MySQL Connector/Python available through the Python Package Index

Today we registered MySQL Connector/Python with the Python Package Index (PyPI). It makes installing your favorite connector even easier (provided you first install setuptools or pip):

shell> easy_install mysql-connector
shell> pip install mysql-connector

Please report problems either using Launchpad or MySQL Bugs website.

    Hi Geert, this is my first time with Python and thanks you I’ve found a practical way to install MySQL connector on Python but Im having difficulties, so if you can help me…

    I have used pip to install the connector but when I try to install MySQLdb it gives me this error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “C:\Python27\downloads\MySQL-python-1.2.3\setup.py”, line 15, in

    metadata, options = get_config()
    File “C:\Python27\downloads\MySQL-python-1.2.3\setup_windows.py”, line 7, in g
    et_config
    serverKey = _winreg.OpenKey(_winreg.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, options['registry_ke
    y'])
    WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified

    I’m using Windows x64 and I have created on regedit under Wow6432Node a Python node, the same created by the installer under SOFTWARE. I have added C:\Python27\Scripts on my PATH

    Any idea?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi Geert,

    there seems to be a problem with mysql-connector and pypi:

    $ easy_install mysql-connector
    Searching for mysql-connector
    Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/mysql-connector/
    Couldn’t find index page for ‘mysql-connector’ (maybe misspelled?)
    Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
    Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/
    No local packages or download links found for mysql-connector
    error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse(‘mysql-connector’)

    This seems to have been going on for quite some while: any idea for when it’ll be fixed? if at all?

    thanks,
    Marco

    BTW – pip install fails just as well:

    $ pip install mysql-connector
    Downloading/unpacking mysql-connector
    Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement mysql-connector
    No distributions at all found for mysql-connector
    Storing complete log in /home/marco/.pip/pip.log
