Python Question

having trouble with mysql migration (can't multiply sequence by non-int of type 'tuple')

I am havnig troulble about migrating..I first tried

python migrate qablog

and didn't work. so I tried

python migrate qablog --fake-initial

and didn't work too.. so I googled again and some people were talking about changing the so I changed some things like changing USE_TZ to false ..

python makemigrations qablog

worked well though...can anyone help me with this? ..
python version: 3.4.4
mysql server version: 5.7
django version: 1.10.3

The error log is like below:

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\test>python migrate qablog --fake-initial
Operations to perform:

def publish(self):
self.published_date =

return self.title

and for the migration file.. I looked inside the qablog > migrations folder and there are init and 0001_initial file.. init file is empty (it's just blank inside) and 0001_ initial file is like below


# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
# Generated by Django 1.10.3 on 2016-11-10 07:56
from __future__ import unicode_literals

from django.conf import settings
from django.db import migrations, models
import django.db.models.deletion
import django.utils.timezone

class Migration(migrations.Migration):

initial = True

dependencies = [

operations = [
('id', models.AutoField(auto_created=True, primary_key=True, serialize=False, verbose_name='ID')),
('title', models.CharField(max_length=200)),
('text', models.TextField()),
('created_date', models.DateTimeField(,
('published_date', models.DateTimeField(blank=True, null=True)),
('author', models.ForeignKey(on_delete=django.db.models.deletion.CASCADE, to=settings.AUTH_USER_MODEL)),

I'd really appreciate for some help :-)


found a solution to this question by myself :-)

I don't really know the reason but

if you change file in this path below C:\Python34\Lib\site-packages\mysql\connector\django

especially the part where def bulk_insert_sql function is,,from

 def bulk_insert_sql(self, fields, num_values):
        items_sql = "({0})".format(", ".join(["%s"] * len(fields)))
        return "VALUES " + ", ".join([items_sql] * num_values)

to ...

def bulk_insert_sql(self, fields, placeholder_rows):
    Format the SQL for bulk insert
    placeholder_rows_sql = (", ".join(row) for row in placeholder_rows)
    values_sql = ", ".join("(%s)" % sql for sql in placeholder_rows_sql)
    return "VALUES " + values_sql

there will be no errors in doing python migrate qablog command.
