This is because MySQL wasn't packed with your web app. You need to trace
both of them so that they both end up in the pack, or more simply use an
embedded database like SQLite3.

We have a FAQ entry here: Can ReproZip pack a client-server scenario?

If you choose to go down this path, you'll basically need to do something
like this:

sudo service mysqld stop
reprozip trace sh -c 'SCRIPT_TO_START_MYSQL; python manage.py runserver; SCRIPT_TO_STOP_MYSQL'
sudo service mysqld start

Unfortunately mysql is very annoying on Ubuntu, and the (contrived) init
scripts won't work on ReproZip because of systemd
You should be able to start MySQL with /usr/bin/mysqld_safe, but stopping
it is complex.
