Python & MySQL

Hi all,

I've got a weird problem. I was running Python 2.3 and MySQLdb and had
everything running fine.

Cutting to the chase: After upgrading to 2.4 (and latest modules) the
MySQLdb functions in Python can connect to the database, do queries and
do inserts.

Or rather, it seems to do inserts. If I just run in the Python command
line and manually connect to the database and do an insert and then a
query on what I just inserted the info is there.

However when I use SQLyog to look at the database the info isn't there.
When I close down Python, restart, reconnect and query the info isn't
there.

Info inserted from SQLyog is persistant.

Has anyone had any problems like this before?

thanks,

jason

Okay,

I had the brilliant idea right after posting to google the newsgroups
on this.

db = MySQLdb.connect (user=database_ user,passwd=dat abase_password)

db.autocommit(T rue) <--- One little line!
There ya go. Works like a champ. I swear I was pulling my hair out
yesterday over this.

I suspect you are forgetting to commit your changes to the database, so
they are being rolled back when you close your connection.

Hello Yesterday I installed Python 2.4. Since I often work with MySQL, I need the MySQLdb module, wich worked fine under 2.3. Now, it doesn't work under 2.4, it says it needs python 2.3 when I try to install the module. Now I have some (rather nooby) questions: 1. Has anyone tried installing MySQLdb 1.0 under Python 2.4 and has he succeeded? Please let me know how to do it or where I can find more information. 2. Is it possible to use...

Hi, It seems to me that measuring productivity in a programming language must take into account available tools and libraries. Eclipse for example provides such an amazing IDE for java that it is no longer obvious to me that one would be much more productive in python for medium sized projects. Sure, all that Java static typing can be painful, but Eclipse takes

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
