python 3 pip cannot install mysql module

python3 testserver.com-car-scraping.py html.txt
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "testserver.com-car-scraping.py", line 5, in
    import mysql.connector
ImportError: No module named 'mysql'


For some reason it won't install properly even though I have the mysql client on this machine installed too.

Solution:

You need the mysqlclient-dev libraries for python mysql.

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev python3-dev

sudo pip3 install mysqlclient mysql mysql-connector-python

 pip3 install mysql
