Sorry, I'm out of ideas, too. The "ImportError: File not found" is the thing I
don't get. If I had to debug, I would check if you can import a file ""
in the cgi-bin directory instead. (One, very improbable thing could be that the
provider disabled dynamic loading of extension modules. But they would have had
to do this explicitly on Linux.)

I'd perhaps contact the provider and ask if they could install the module.

What I have done one time, is install my own copy of Python in the cgi-bin
directory. But this is normally more difficult than installing MySQLdb and it
really sucks if you don't have access via ssh.
