Trying to understand the installation steps as given in the official docs.

I ran: virtualenv siteName.

Now I want to clone askbot, but not sure what the relationship between siteName in the virtualenv command and projectName in the git clone command.

When I cd into siteName, what is the relationship between the siteName and the dir I want to clone askbot into?

Or should I run git clone first, then cd into the dir and run virtualenv without specifying a dir, that is, run "virtualenv ."?

The virtual environment (recommended even if you only run askbot on the server) can be created anywhere. For example in the same directory where the cloned code base is installed.

If you have a virtual environment, it might be easier to set up independent production and staging instances on the same machine, as well as running other applications. If you install into the global environment, there may be dependency clashes between the various applications.

Take a look at the virtualenv documentation and explanations elsewhere on the web.
