I have the same problem on OpenShift. I thought it was related to the environment.

I've been trying to get Askbot to run on Openshift but I keep bumping into this error:

The Openshift environemnt is pretty simple: just Python 2.7.5 and PostgreSQL 9.2. This is how I installed Askbot onto Openshift:

  1. run askbot-install on my localmachine and edit
  2. push everything to Openshift's GIT repo
  3. have Openshift run the rest of the commands in the official installation guide via the deploy hook

Theoretically, this should replicate what one typically does when following the official installation guide.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this error?

It works now. Thanks!

2015-05-09 10:38:21 -0500 asked a question What versions of Django does Askbot support?

I've managed to successfully install AskBot using the official documentation. However, it seems that it comes with Django 1.5.12 which is no longer supported.

If I update Django to the latest version, will AskBot still work? If not, what is the latest version that AskBot supports?

I'm trying to install the latest version of askbot from askbot-devel (0.7.53) but I got stuck on the following error.

C:\Projects\askbottest>python migrate askbot WARNING!!! You are using a 'locmem' (local memory) caching backend, which is OK for a low volume site running on a single-process server. For a multi-process configuration it is neccessary to have a production cache system, such as redis or memcached.

With local memory caching and multi-process setup you might intermittently see outdated content on your site.

Running migrations for askbot: - Migrating forwards to 0189_add_avatar_urls_jsonfield_to_auth_user.

askbot:0189_add_avatar_urls_jsonfield_to_auth_user FATAL ERROR - The following SQL query failed: ALTER TABLE "auth_user" ADD COLUMN "avatar_urls" text NOT NULL DEFAULT '{}'; The error was: column "avatar_urls" of relation "auth_user" already exists

Error in migration: askbot:0189_add_avatar_urls_jsonfield_to_auth_user DatabaseError: column "avatar_urls" of relation "auth_user" already exists

Any ideas?


I ended up replacing forward() with this:

def forwards(self, orm): #db.add_column('auth_user', 'avatar_urls', #'jsonfield.fields.JSONField')(default={}), # keep_default=False) pass


I was able to complete the migration but this is just a quick workaround not a proper solution.
