How can I access MySQL Version 4.1.22 from Python 2.2.3 ???

Hi all,

I would like to use Python with MySQL to create a database backend for
my website. Therefore I look at the module MySQLdb.

However the hosting my organisation uses has:

Python 2.2.3 (#1, Dec 21 2006, 18:29:13)
[GCC 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-56)]

MySQL Version 4.1.22-standard-log
Some web surfing reveals:
MySQLdb 1.20 requires Python 2.3.4 so I would have to use MySQLdb

BUT MySQLdb 1.0.1 is compatible with MySQL-3.22, 3.23, and 4.0 ( * * *
not 4.1 or newer * * * ).

So there is no version of MySQLdb that works with my versions of
Python and MySQL???

Is this correct? Is there a different module I can use instead?

Please help me because the other option is to change the domain to a
windows server and use asp.net, which I would rather not do :)

Thanks in advance,

I need to be able to access mySQL 4.0 and 4.1 databases from python. I was hoping to find mysql-python 1.2.0 already built for Sparc, but no such luck. I've been struggling trying to get it build.

I'm getting my feet wet with making Python talk to MySQL via ODBC. I started on Windows, and it went smoothly enough due to the ODBC stuff that apparently is native to Python at least on windows (I've been following ch. 13 of Mark Hammond's py on win32 book). But now I'm trying to do equivalent stuff on linux (Fedora Core 3) with python...

We've fooled around with Access a bit, but only using the single-user store-bought version. It seems to be a good database - versatile and infinitely programmable - and can apparently be used as a front end to SQL server if we ever needed to go that route. But - is there a client/server version of Access ? Looking on the CDW site there is...

Hello, I am using the Python DB API for access to MySQL. But it is not platform-independent - I need a module not included in Python by default - python-mysql, and it uses a compiled binary _mysql.so. So it is not platform-independent because for each web-server on different platform, I would have to download it and extra compile it...
