when i am trying to migrate askbot this error happens

[pramvir@web322 forum]$ python migrate askbot

/home/pramvir/webapps/0to9to0/lib/python2.6/django/db/ DeprecationWarning: settings.DATABASE_* is deprecated; use settings.DATABASES instead. DeprecationWarning /home/pramvir/webapps/0to9to0/lib/python2.6/django/db/ DeprecationWarning: Short names for ENGINE in database configurations are deprecated.

! Since you have a database that does not support running ! schema-altering statements in transactions, we have had ! to leave it in an interim state between migrations.

! You might be able to recover with: = ALTER TABLE askbot_badgedata ADD COLUMN multiple bool NOT NULL DEFAULT False; [] - no dry run output for alter_column() due to dynamic DDL, sorry = ALTER TABLE askbot_badgedata ADD COLUMN description varchar(300) NOT NULL DEFAULT ''; [] - no dry run output for alter_column() due to dynamic DDL, sorry = ALTER TABLE askbot_badgedata ADD COLUMN type smallint NOT NULL DEFAULT 3; [] - no dry run output for alter_column() due to dynamic DDL, sorry = ALTER TABLE askbot_badgedata ADD COLUMN name varchar(50) NOT NULL DEFAULT ''; [] - no dry run output for alter_column() due to dynamic DDL, sorry - no dry run output for alter_column() due to dynamic DDL, sorry - no dry run output for delete_unique_column() due to dynamic DDL, sorry

! The South developers regret this has happened, and would ! like to gently persuade you to consider a slightly ! easier-to-deal-with DBMS (one that supports DDL transactions) !

Askbot does not support Django 1.4 release so please use Django 1.3 we're working with django's 1.4 support.

And I guess you are using Mysql as a database currently there is a bug in south that breaks delete_unique method so please install south from their repository More info on this subject here

edit flag offensive delete publish link more


when I remove south I can't sign in :-(

@Pramvir Need some info: django version, database server and database driver you're using

Fitoria ( 2012-04-09 14:58:52 -0500 )edit

django 1.3, psql,

I don't know what is driver. I posted a ticket to my hosting company about installing they successfully installed it in sqlite3 but for psql they said askbot is not compatible with latest psql and thus this migration error happening..

Pramvir ( 2012-04-09 15:13:12 -0500 )edit

see this is installation with sqlite3

can I officially use askbot with sqlite or I must use psql ???
