Ok, so I'm working with the docs at: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/python.html#installing-packages-with-pip
I already had them correct it once, the word install was missing after pip-X.Y. This tells me that not many people actually use pip. When I tried to install an app into one of my existing app directories it ended up in my home directories. As far as I know, there's no equivalent for the --install-dir option and I'm not sure if a --script-dir type option would be necessary either, as there are for easy_install.
Anyway, has anyone successfully used pip to install into an app directory?
This should work, given "foo" as your app name, "bar" as your package name, and assuming you've installed pip with "easy_install-2.7 pip":
Hope that helps!
