Hello, I still did not created my site, but I'm trying to test askbot in my computer. I'm almost finishing it, but there are some things I still couldn't do.
One thing is I cannot install mysql.python. I've researched and I found places that say that mysql-python does not work on windows. Is it true?
Then I have to install the recaptcha things. I can't use easy_install with those, but I go to the urls in the INSTALL file and I don't understand what I have to do.
Can you help me?
Hi Jeremy, regarding MySQL-python in windows please check this out.
On Linux all dependencies (excluding recaptcha-django) will install one or two lines:
easy_install mysql-python django South recaptcha-client \ markdown2 html5lib python-openid easy_install django-debug-toolbar==0.7.0
django-debug-toolbar must be of specific version. The latest one has a serious unsolved bug, which prevents using the toolbar at least with askbot (occasionally you'll want to turn it on because it helps debugging).
recaptcha-django library is not yet accessible through easy_install and I will just add it to the distribution so that nobody has to download it anymore - I'll solve this issue by tomorrow, but for now you can get it through subversion (install some subversion client for windows first)
Here is how it goes on Linux:
svn checkout http://recaptcha-django.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ \ recaptcha-django-read-only cd recaptcha-django-read-only python setup.py install
