You should avoid sending the connection info to the list. Google will
be making this widely available. Pranksters *will* delete your tables.
Change your password!
Including the error info would help, but chances the following changes
will fix things:
stmt = """CREATE TABLE links (
ID INT NOT NULL auto_increment,
primary key (ID)
for line in inp.readlines():
#links = map(str, line.split(",")) # values are already strings
links = line.split(",",2) # limit to two splits i.e. only use first 2 commas
arr.append(links) # arr is not used ???
INSERT INTO links (Name, URL, category)
VALUES (%s, %s, %s)""", links
You are not supplying an ID value. I assume that you want MySQL to fill
it in for you. So you need to make ID an auto_increment field.
The cursor.execute is now getting *two* arguments, the sql and the
values for the insert. Do not interpolate your values into the SQL
string. Leave that to the MySQLdb module. The %s in the VALUES serves
as a placeholder for the module and should not be used by you with the
Python string format (%) operator. This should work so long as the name
and URL never contain commas.
