#Setting up MySQL/MariaDB for Planet
Either use the libmysql library which needs to be installed on the machine using
sudo apt-get install python3-dev libmysqlclient-dev
and within the virtualenvironment
pip install mysqlclient
In the config file the connection needs to be set up using :
SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'mysql://user:pass@ip_address/database'
In case the **libraries cannot be installed** on the machine a pure python mysql connector can be used. Install this within
the virtual environment.
pip install PyMySQL
In the config file the connection needs to be set up using :
SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'mysql+pymysql://user:pass@ip_address/database'
## Setting up the database using the MySQL CLI
First create a database. The character set and collate are important as sqlalchemy-migrate doesn't work with utf8mb4 (the
default).
CREATE DATABASE planet_db_01 CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_general_ci;
Give permissions to a user (planet_dev in this example) to access the database:
GRANT INDEX, CREATE, DROP, SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, ALTER, EXECUTE, INSERT on planet_db_01.* TO planet_dev@localhost;
