After two days of hell I managed to install Python 2.6 on CentOS, along with all the Askbot dependencies (I think).
I cloned the github repo into
askantimoon is my git project name). Most of the Askbot files are now in
/var/www/html/askantimoon/askbot. Is it a good idea to put my repo in a directory which contains Web-accessible files?
python2.6 setup.py develop and created the MySQL database. Now it seems I have to run another setup script called
startforum (why? I already ran
When I run
startforum, it asks me "where to deploy (in which directory?)". What does that mean? I thought Askbot was already in
/var/www/site/askantimoon. And what is a good directory to choose here?
startforum script creates the django site - it is a deployment script, while
setup.py installs the python modules where they belong on the python system tree.
In that case - if your current directory is
/var/www/site/askantimoon, answer with "." (a dot - current directory). There may be an error message, ignore it.
The question "where to deploy" means - where on the file system to install the django site.
After startforum runs, you will get
urls.py, etc. - files necessary for the Django site.
