The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: Error loading MySQLdb module.
Did you install mysqlclient?

Ii. Problem Solving
1. Source of problem
After installation of Django, the default database driver is sqlite, but I do not have sqlite database, so change to
mysql, then go to the directory first/first/, and find:

    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.sqlite3',
        'NAME': os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'db.sqlite3'),

Modified to:

    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql',
        'NAME': 'first',
        'USER': 'python',
        'PASSWORD': '123456',
        'HOST': '',
        # 'PORT': '',

Run the command python manage. Py runserver then executes to start the service at the following Error:
django. Core. Exceptions. ImproperlyConfigured: Error loading MySQLdb module: No module named MySQLdb
2. Solve
Obviously, there is no mysql driver installed, just install it, so I quickly typed the command line:

pip install mysql-python

ImportError: No module named 'ConfigParser'
Python3.x is changed to lowercase relative to PYTHON 2.x, indicating that THE MYSQL python in PIP does not support Python3.x. Maybe the update in PIP is relatively slow, so we will download their source code installation. However, the latest update date of the source code is 2012, and there is still no support for Python3.x!
How does this work?Change the support python3 driver try, heart energizes, grass mud horse, of course, as a result on making a search, found a PyMySQL (, which, of course, also have it in the PIP, then I quickly on the command line with:

pip install PyMySQL

Django does not recognize this alien monk, how to do, or to do, find mysite/mysite/, enter the following content and save:

import pymysql

Then When I ran Python Runserver, another prompt popped up:
You have unapplied migrations; Run 'Python manage. Py Migrate' to apply them.
Of course, this prompt does not affect the operation of the native server. At this time, when we visit, we will see the successful prompt:

It worked!

Congratulations on your first Django-powered page.

Of course, you haven't actually done any work yet. Next, start your first app by running python startapp [app_label].

You're seeing this message because you have DEBUG = True in your Django settings file and you haven't configured any URLs. Get to work!

Of course, I didn't like the warning, and he told me what to do to get rid of him, of course! I quickly copy the contents to the command line:

python makemigrations
python migrate

Then restart the service, it's normal!
