Whenever I create a Django application in the control panel I end up getting There was an error creating the app with the custom script. I have tried this with a couple of different django versions. (1.5.1, 1.5, 1.4.5) Also, the name of the app is only 12 characters, I have tried to shorten this down to only 5 characters.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I looked up your account and found that your crontab had some garbage in the first line. The installer attempts to create a cron job to start your Django app for you, and the garbage was causing the installer to fail.

I've fixed your crontab, so you should be able to create the app now.

Hope that helps!

I have the same problem. My crontab also looks clean.

How can I fix it?
