IntegrityError during scripted creation of superuser
I am trying to create a superuser automatically with the following code:
from django.core.management import setup_environ import settings setup_environ(settings) from django.contrib.auth.models import User u = User(username='<USER>') u.set_password('<PASSWORD>') u.is_superuser = True u.is_staff = True u.save()
However, I get this IntegrityError which I believe is connected to addition of the User.status field:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "mkadmin.py", line 12, in <module> u.save() File "/var/www/askbot/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/db/models/base.py", line 546, in save force_update=force_update, update_fields=update_fields) ... File "/var/www/askbot/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/db/backends/postgresql_psycopg2/base.py", line 54, in execute return self.cursor.execute(query, args) django.db.utils.IntegrityError: null value in column "status" violates not-null constraint
I've tried adding
u.status="a" but this doesn't help. The database query still doesn't include the status column. Any ideas how this can be done?
