Hi, First post to the list :-)
Could someone point me in the right direction for MySQL using Python 
tutorials etc. I've tried using the MySQLdb module (I think) and I cannot 
connect. I know that the server is running and that the passwords are correct?

db = MySQLdb.Connect(host=db_host, user=db_user, passwd=db_passwd, db=db_db)

Thanks for any help.
