I installed according to the second set of instructions (not using easy install). I also installed mysql and the python mysql adapter. I get the following error:
C:\Python26\Scripts>startforum.exe Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Python26\Scripts\startforum-script.py load_entry_point('askbot==0.6.5', 'console_s File "c:\python26\setuptools-0.6c11-py2.6.egg\ File "c:\python26\setuptools-0.6c11-py2.6.egg\ File "c:\python26\setuptools-0.6c11-py2.6.egg\ ImportError: No module named askbot.deployment
If you have script
startforum but still see that error that means
askbot module does not appear to be in your
PYTHONPATH. You can start python in command line and type:
import sys print '\n'.join(sys.path)
That will print out whatever is in your in the Python system path.
otherwise, all that script does - copy files from directory
askbot/setup_templates into your django project directory. You need all of the contents of that directory and establish the following structure:
project_dir/ #<--- some very distinctive name __init__.py #empty but required for python to recognize site as python module urls.py #url map manage.py #management script - this one is actually 1:1 django default settings.py #where most important settings live log/ #directory for site logger askbot/upfiles/ #directory to hold uploaded files.
askbot/upfiles must be writable by the webserver.
You probably already have the "project_dir" and
askbot since you've downloaded from the repository, or took tar file?
So you can do it manually too, bypassing the
Also - I will push the fresh update in a bit - I recommend to take it - there is a bugfix for runtime settings interface.
