I'm new to this so forgive me? if? this has an obvious solution. I'm attempting to install django by using this tutorial (time stamped to where my issue is): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9vfeKrFbWUA&t=255

Upon running collectstatic and typing "yes" I get: "[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/static'

help?

I searched harder and found this:

"Set STATIC_ROOT to '/home/username/webapps/static_media_app/' where static_media_app is the name of the static media application."

from this: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/django/config.html

They should probably mention that in the video...

Sorry about that, the video has become out of date.

Of course you should set STATIC_ROOT otherwise there's no point running collectstatic.
