  • Hi all!
  • I am trying to setup askbot on an ubuntu server.
  • I use PostgreSql as my database.
  • I got such error information when I executed:
  • python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:9413 >
  • cannot import name str_to_unicode
  • Unhandled exception in thread started by <bound method="" command.inner_run="" of="" <django.contrib.staticfiles.management.commands.runserver.command="" object="" at="" 0x9401d4c="">> Traceback (most recent call last):

  • ImportError: cannot import name str_to_unicode

And the process stuck here without any progress. Is it possible that askbot0.7.48 is not compatible with django-1.5?

Askbot is not compatible with Django 1.5 at the moment. There is another answer to this question - search by the str_to_unicode.

Hi Evgeny, Thank you! Sorry, I did search before but I just didn't get any result on 'str_to_unicode', my fault. I will try the solution: pip uninstall Django pip install Django==1.4.5
