The problem I'm facing while trying to connect to database for MySQL. 

Traceback (most recent call last):

django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: Error loading MySQLdb module: No module named MySQLdb

I have also given below the database settings that I have used :

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql', # Add 'postgresql_psycopg2', 'mysql', 'sqlite3' or 'oracle'.
        'NAME': 'ar_test_db',                      # Or path to database file if using 
        # The following settings are not used with sqlite3:
        'USER': '',
        'PASSWORD': '',
        'HOST': '',                      # Empty for localhost through domain sockets or   '127.0.0.1' for localhost through TCP.
        'PORT': '',                      # Set to empty string for default.
    }
}

It looks such as you do not have the python MySQL package installed, try:

pip install mysql-python

or if you aren't using a virtual environment (on *nix hosts), then try:

sudo pip install mysql-python

I hope I could be helpful.
