To work with MySQL in Python 3, you can use the Python MySQL Connector module. Here are the steps to connect to a MySQL database and perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations using Python:

Install MySQL Connector

You can install MySQL Connector using pip command in your terminal:

pip install mysql-connector-python

Connect to the MySQL Database

To connect to the MySQL database, you need to import the mysql.connector module and create a connection object by specifying the host, user, password, and database name. Here is an example:

import mysql.connector

mydb = mysql.connector.connect(


Create cursor object

After connecting to the MySQL database, you need to create a cursor object to execute SQL queries. Here is an example:

mycursor = mydb.cursor()

Execute SQL Queries

Once you have the cursor object, you can execute SQL queries using the execute() method. Here are some examples of SQL queries:

Create a table:

import mysql.connector

mydb = mysql.connector.connect(

mycursor = mydb.cursor()

# Create a table
mycursor.execute("CREATE TABLE customers (name VARCHAR(255), address VARCHAR(255))")

Insert into a table:

# Insert a record
sql = "INSERT INTO customers (name, address) VALUES (%s, %s)"
val = ("John", "Highway 21")
mycursor.execute(sql, val)
print(mycursor.rowcount, "record inserted.")

Selecting data from a table:

# Select all records
mycursor.execute("SELECT * FROM customers")
myresult = mycursor.fetchall()
for x in myresult:

Updating a row in Table:

# Update a record
sql = "UPDATE customers SET address = 'Canyon 123' WHERE name = 'John'"
print(mycursor.rowcount, "record(s) affected")

Deleting a record from a Table:

# Delete a record
sql = "DELETE FROM customers WHERE address = 'Highway 21'"
print(mycursor.rowcount, "record(s) deleted")

Close the Connection

After you finish working with the database, you should close the connection using the close() method. Here is an example:


In the next part, we will cover advance tasks we can perform on MySQL using Pythong.
