This is a well-written how-to - thanks. As of Nov. 2011, the setup file no longer contains the lines :

...
if sys.platform not in WIN_PLATFORMS
    install_requires.append('mysql-python')

So, they can't be commented out, which was a bit confusing, but one goes on. However the install went way over the alwaysdata limits. I ended up springing for the 9e service and when the install was finished it was at 27 Mb. No worries, I can afford 9e a month.

However, when I start askbot (python manage.py runserver) I get an error message saying settings.py can't be found, which ends up being an import error, where settings.py can't find the module for djcelery (and others) even though the modules are right there.

Have to say I'm quite lost at this point. Believe I've followed the instructions but haven't got the python kung fu to debug.
