Hi, I’m running into this blocking issue while setting up Django with MySQL database. I’m pasting here what I tried so far on Ubuntu 18.04 droplet.
$ sudo apt install nginx mysql-server python3-pip python3-dev libmysqlclient-dev $ sudo apt install mysql-client $ sudo mysql_secure_installation $ sudo mysql ( configured new db requirements ) $ sudo -H pip3 install --upgrade pip $ sudo -H pip3 install virtualenv $ pip install django gunicorn mysqlclient (virtualenv)
This is where mysqlclient was not getting installed. Here is the error snippet.
(vkdev)user@ubuntu-hejjjj:~/testproject$ pip install mysqlclient Collecting mysqlclient Using cached https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/d0/97/7326248ac8d5049968bf4ec708a5d3d4806e412a42e74160d7f266a3e03a/mysqlclient-1.4.6.tar.gz Building wheels for collected packages: mysqlclient Building wheel for mysqlclient (setup.py) ... error ERROR: Command errored out with exit status 1: ....... ....... /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lssl /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcrypto collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status error: command 'x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1 ---------------------------------------- ERROR: Failed building wheel for mysqlclient Running setup.py clean for mysqlclient Failed to build mysqlclient Installing collected packages: mysqlclient Running setup.py install for mysqlclient ... error ERROR: Command errored out with exit status 1:
Since mysqlclient install is failed here, I continued to try these steps but I don’t have luck so far.
$ pip install django gunicorn (virtualenv) $ sudo apt install python3-dev libmysqlclient-dev $ sudo apt-get install python3-pymysql $ sudo apt-get install python3.6-dev $ sudo apt-get install python3.7-dev libmysqlclient-dev gcc default-libmysqlclient-dev
I appreciate if someone has a clue with appropriate steps.
