Python: MySQLdb on Windows virtualenv (w. figures)

If you have a virtualenv on Windows and you want to add MySQLdb support via mysql-python, read this before spending hours of your life to figure why it doesn’t and it will never work.

1) Install MySQL for Python selecting the same Python version of the virtualenv

python-mysql-win

2) From site-packages directory above, copy the selected files:

python-mysql-mysqldb

3) (optional) On PyCharm, look for virtualenv site-packages inside the path marked with the arrow:

pycharm-virtualenv

4) Open your virtualenv console ad do:

import MySQLdb

MySQL for Python is now installed on your virtualenv.
