To the powers that be,

I am running Apache 2 on Mac OSX 10.6.2.

I have, after many hours, managed to install MySQLdb, however I'm not
sure if I installed it correctly as I had to fudge it a little.

I can import and use the module fine in IDLE or in python from
Terminal (which would suggest it installed correctly), however when I
try and import the module in a cgi script, I get the following error
out of cgitb:

<type 'exceptions.ImportError'>: No module named MySQLdb
args = ('No module named MySQLdb',)
message = 'No module named MySQLdb'

MySQLdb installed inside a .egg file in /Library/Frameworks/
Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages, so I
appended this to sys.path, and got a new error:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ExtractionError: Can't extract file(s) to egg cache

The following error occurred while trying to extract file(s) to the
Python egg

[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Library/WebServer/.python-eggs'

The Python egg cache directory is currently set to:


Perhaps your account does not have write access to this directory?
You can
change the cache directory by setting the PYTHON_EGG_CACHE environment
variable to point to an accessible directory.

I have no idea what to from there?!

Apologies for the long question, but I've read many in which people
complained about not enough detail, so...
Thanks very much, and I hope someone can help!
