Mysqdb for Python 2.5 under Windows

I recently  had to  port a linux based python project to a windows platform. The python project makes use of the sqlalchemy framework and thus required the MysqlDb module too.  Windows platform has python 2.5 and after searching for a while i realised that the python and mysql dudes seem to be taking their time to intergrate the 2. luckily some german dudes have a solution. If you ever have to use python with mysql under windows try this link.

  • Nice, but I’ve always like SQLite on Windows if though it’s not as powerful as MySQL.
    I will try it out though. Thanks for sharing.

    • sqlite is ok if you have a small record set, it becomes inefficient on a 2million + record set requiring concurrent access regularily
