Can you help me fix this error?
index() has as an argument the bottle_pymysql keyword 'pymydb' but i'am not calling this function from within myscript it supposed to be run when script starts.

Pro-tip - there's an inverse correlation between the number of lines of code posted and my enthusiasm for helping with a question :)
