Hi there, since I got problems with the pip-version of askbot I am now trying to use the git version. But either there is a bug or I am just too bad to get it to work...

This time I can't even execute syncdb (see traceback below). I initialized a new database, copied my other project and replaced the askbot-app inside by the one from the current git master-branch. In my other installation I had the same problem, but I fixed it by emptying the database (I already created a cache table). This time the database is empty (I already recreated it) but the error occurs. I tried to put

EXTERNAL_KEYS = {
    'RECAPTCHA_SECRET' : 'xxx'
}

in my settings.py. That didn't help. Also I created the cachetable (I use DB-caching) but it didn't help.

So now I'm stuck since a few hours with that and don't know how to fix this. Is there a known solution?

Many thanks for help in advance.

Could you try installing askbot alone as is - does that work?

If it does - see what is the difference between the stock settings.py template and your version, that should give some clues.

Thanks for that hint... somehow I didn't realize, that there were differences between my settings.py and the one in setup_templates. I copied the one from the templates and then syncdb guided me through finishing the settings (e.g. putting group_messaging). I'm sorry that I didn't realize this easy solution by myself. Thanks a lot (unfortunately I can't upvote your answer -.- )

Could you email me your version of settings.py? (support@askbot.com) Maybe we could somehow fix our settings tester.
