Hey there all,
i have a question about how to point my python install to my sql

when i enter this: db = MySQLdb.connect(user="user", passwd="pass",

i get this:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in -toplevel-
    db = MySQLdb.connect(user="user", passwd="pass", db="MyDB")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MySQLdb/", line 66,
in Connect
    return Connection(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MySQLdb/", line
134, in __init__
    super(Connection, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs2)
OperationalError: (1049, "Unknown database 'MyDB'")

i am using the all in one package from lampp (now xampp) and i have
tested a couple of python scripts from the cgi, but.... nothing that
connects to the database.

any ideas?
