The answer is here. It should just work, if you have any problems - please report them.
edit: please keep in mind that the free account is quite limited and probably should not be used for a real life application.

The instructions in the wiki seem to be outdated. For example, there's no
and the changes that it suggests are located in the file
should I copy the former to the latter? or should I change it right where it is?

Thanks for the help. However I'm kind of disapointed. Don't askbot warns people through email? I thought it did but I got no emails warning me about answers to my questions. Is that normal?
The install is now running into several obstacles and doesn't work as is. First of all it renames the tar file "master" and then halts installation before creating the django_site directory. Second, more annoying, is that setup.py tries to fetch the django toolbar program dependency at a website that is down, so that setup.py also halts -- this is a problem I have even in installing it on my own system.
I am looking forward to one day using askbot but as it is now, none of the installation instructions actually work.
EDIT: the alwaysdata installation instructions now work.

This is a well-written how-to - thanks. As of Nov. 2011, the setup file no longer contains the lines :
... if sys.platform not in WIN_PLATFORMS install_requires.append('mysql-python')
So, they can't be commented out, which was a bit confusing, but one goes on. However the install went way over the alwaysdata limits. I ended up springing for the 9e service and when the install was finished it was at 27 Mb. No worries, I can afford 9e a month.
However, when I start askbot (python manage.py runserver) I get an error message saying settings.py can't be found, which ends up being an import error, where settings.py can't find the module for djcelery (and others) even though the modules are right there.
Have to say I'm quite lost at this point. Believe I've followed the instructions but haven't got the python kung fu to debug.

Everything was fine as given in wiki till I executed following command :
python manage.py syncdb
I get this error on alwaysdata shell :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "manage.py", line 2, in <module>
from django.core.management import execute_manager
ImportError: No module named core.management
Please let me know how to debug this.
