I'am novice in web development.

Can you describe workflow of developing site based on askbot? I have installed copy on production server. How to make changes? I've downloaded sources from forked repo, made some changes. What's next? How to update production server without reinstalling everything from the beggining?

Askbot is a django application, so the workflow will be the same as for other django apps.

Clone the repository, cd into the repo directory, make a new virtualenv, activate it, then run

python develop #this step is key as it allows to keep the working copy in the current dir

Then deploy the app into a project inside the same directory with askbot-setup script. Answer . to the question "where do you want to deploy askbot".

I am getting the following error : Directory 'site' is aready used by other Python module. Please choose some other name for your django project Enter directory path (absolute or relative) to deploy askbot. To choose current directory - enter "."
