Example for using MySQL

There are examples included with the MySQLdb code.

On my development machine, I only need to do this to connect and query
the database:

import MySQLdb

db = MySQLdb.connect(db="test")
cursor = db.cursor()
cursor.execute('select * from test')
results = cursor.fetchall()
print results

On our web server, where the mysql database is shared, I need to do
this to connect:

db = MySQLdb.connect(user="myuser", passwd="mypassword", db="mydb",

- the unix_socket string is because this file is not in the standard
location on this particular web server.

There are quite a few options for the connect() method, so get your
hands on the docs that come with MySQLdb.
