        'NAME': 'ar_test_db',                      # Or path to database file if using 
        # The following settings are not used with sqlite3:
        'USER': '',

        'HOST': '',                      # Empty for localhost through domain sockets or   '127.0.0.1' for localhost through TCP.
        'PORT': '',                      # Set to empty string for default.
    }
}

How can I solve this error?

Hello @kartik,

It looks like you don't have the python mysql package installed, try:

pip install mysql-python

or if not using a virtual environment (on *nix hosts):

sudo pip install mysql-python

Hope this is helpful!
