Hello @kartik,

For centos users:

yum install -y mysql-devel python-devel python-setuptools

then

pip install MySQL-python

If this solution doesn't work, and print gcc compile error like:
_mysql.c:29:20: error: Python.h: No such file or directory

You need to specify the path of Python.h, like this:
pip install --global-option=build_ext --global-option="-I/usr/include/python2.6" MySQL-python

Hope this work!!
