Django - Database


What databases are officially supported by the django project?

If you plan to use Django’s database API functionality, you’ll need to make sure a database server is running. Django supports many different database servers and is officially supported with PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle and SQLite.

How can we use MySQL with django?

If you’re using MySQL, you’ll need a DB API driver like mysqlclient. See notes for the MySQL backend for details.

What are the requirments for using the ' migrate' command?

If you plan to use Django’s migrate command to automatically create database tables for your models (after first installing Django and creating a project), you’ll need to ensure that Django has permission to create and alter tables in the database you’re using; if you plan to manually create the tables, you can simply grant Django SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE permissions. After creating a database user with these permissions, you’ll specify the details in your project’s settings file, see DATABASES for details. If you’re using Django’s testing framework to test database queries, Django will need permission to create a test database.
