I am also confused by your apparent dependency on this script
(mysql_config.pl) to create a client connection. This is not the
location that stores or processes or influences your startup parameters.
Neither can it be used for creating client-server connections.
The location of your configuration details is a 'my.ini' file or files
located in one of these locations
What happens when you temporarily rename mysql_config.pl to something
else? What error messages do you get?
Also. You have established that using the command line client
(mysql.exe) works just fine for you. What is the other tool are you
attempting to use as a MySQL client that has been giving you problems?
There are at least two connection libraries you can launch from Python
that allow you to connect to MySQL. Which one is yours?
