10.2.4 MySQLConnection.config() Method



Configures a MySQLConnection instance after it has been instantiated. For a complete list of possible arguments, see Section 7.1, “Connector/Python Connection Arguments”.


  • kwargs: Connection arguments.

You could use the config() method to change (for example) the user name, then call reconnect().


cnx = mysql.connector.connect(user='joe', database='test')
# Connected as 'joe'
# Now connected as 'jane'

For a connection obtained from a connection pool, config() raises an exception. See Section 9.1, “Connector/Python Connection Pooling”.
