The file you said is empty.

When I get into the site first is see:

HttpResponseRedirect

Location: /questions/

The Django Debug Toolbar has intercepted a redirect to the above URL for debug viewing purposes. You can click the above link to continue with the redirect as normal. If you'd like to disable this feature, set the DEBUGTOOLBARCONFIG dictionary's key INTERCEPT_REDIRECTS to False.

Then I click on /questions/ and I see a lot of stuff, but I think the most important si this:

TemplateSyntaxError at /questions/

Caught DatabaseError while rendering: for SELECT DISTINCT, ORDER BY expressions must appear in select list LINE 1: ...author_id") WHERE ("question"."id" IN (1)) ORDER BY RANDOM()

Want me to put the entire thing here?

I believe the mysql version is 5. The other one I don't know, I just used the links in that page you talked about. Now how can I update the site? I installed the git and did git clone http://github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel.git, but it does no work now.

git clone does that initial cloning - feel free to ask more questions - but do post them as questions :). I'm setting up a better installation document now.

Could you turn on debug mode - set DEBUG=True in settings_local.py and post back what you see when you go through the same steps?

Also what is in the end of file log/askbot.log?

edit: thanks. I've made a small change in the master branch of the repository that will get rid of that error, this error does not show on my installations so I think it is system-specific. Give a try to the newer version, I hope there are no other incompatibilities like that.

What are your versions of mysql-python and mysql?
