Move to PostgresQL - the best option for the production hosting of all available.

Trying to convert my sqlite database postgresql

[root@Centos DEV]# python shell --database=sqlite
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/Django-1.4.5-py2.6.egg/django/conf/ DeprecationWarning: The ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX setting has been removed; use STATIC_URL instead.
  "use STATIC_URL instead.", DeprecationWarning)
Usage: shell [options]

Runs a Python interactive interpreter. Tries to use IPython, if it's available. error: no such option: --database

How to solve that ?

Use django's dumpdata and loaddata commands.

one way to do it (not 100% reliable) is to do the following:

With sqlite as a database:

python dumpdata > mydata.json

Change to postgres in, run sycdb and migrate commands and then:

python loaddata < mydata.json
