6.4.1 Obtaining Connector/Python

Although using pip to obtain and install Connector/Python is recommended, there are alternatives. Packages are available at the Connector/Python download site. For some packaging formats, there are different packages for different versions of Python; choose the one appropriate for the version of Python installed on your system.


The X DevAPI interface was separated into its own package (mysqlx-connector-python) in Connector/Python 8.3.0. Previously, the classic MySQL protocol package (mysql-connector-python) installed interfaces to both X and classic protocols.
