I'm working on a project with the Raspberry Pi that involves connecting it to a MySQL database. After doing some research, I have found PyMySQL to be what I need to install through the terminal. I've tried to download it with
pip install PyMySQL
but I am just getting the following error:
Exception: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/basecommand.py", line 122, in main status = self.run(options, args) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/commands/install.py", line 295, in run requirement_set.install(install_options, global_options, root=options.root_path) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/req.py", line 1436, in install requirement.install(install_options, global_options, *args, **kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/req.py", line 672, in install self.move_wheel_files(self.source_dir, root=root) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/req.py", line 902, in move_wheel_files pycompile=self.pycompile, File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/wheel.py", line 214, in move_wheel_files clobber(source, lib_dir, True) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/wheel.py", line 204, in clobber os.makedirs(destdir) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/os.py", line 157, in makedirs mkdir(name, mode) OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PyMySQL-0.8.0.dist-info' Storing debug log for failure in /home/pi/.pip/pip.log
Any ideas on how I can fix this?
