How to deal with this ERROR (1049, "Unknown database '/users/ohyunjun/work/astral/mysql'")

In the Django settings.py, I set databases option this way

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql',
        'NAME': os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'mysql'),
        'USER': 'root',
        'PASSWORD': 'sp153426',
        'HOST': '127.0.0.1',
        'PORT': '3306',
    }
}

And I executed this command

python manage.py syncdb

But failed with this error

'NAME' is the name of your database. With MySQL, you need to manually create your database too. Let's say, if you run:

$ mysql -u root -p

mysql> CREATE DATABASE mydb;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.02 sec)

your configuration should be:

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql',
        'NAME': 'mydb',
        'USER': 'root',
        'PASSWORD': 'sp153426',
        'HOST': '127.0.0.1',
        'PORT': '3306',
    }
}
