in SQL by (6.1k points)

I'm using windows 10 command line for a django project using python34. However, I am facing difficulties with the SQL.

What I have installed is mysqlclient by using pip install mysqlclient==1.3.5 and located the file to make sure that I was not delusional. Thenafter then ran python manage.py migrate to migrate the tables to the SQL database (I am using phpmyadmin). However when the command returned with:

File "C:\Users\user\env\lib\site-packages\django\db\backends\mysql\base.py", line 30, in <module>
    'Did you install mysqlclient or MySQL-python?' % e
django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: Error loading MySQLdb module: No module named 'MySQLdb'.
Did you install mysqlclient or MySQL-python?

I am aware that the questions like these already exist, but not one solution seems to have made any impact on the attempts. Thank you in advance.

Execute the below code in cmd:

pip install pymysql

Then, you can edit __init__.py in your project origin dir (take the same as settings.py).

Add the following:

import pymysql

pymysql.install_as_MySQLdb()
