I upgraded a django site to 1.6b2 just like the docs suggested and I keep getting a 500 error. It worked with 1.5.2. Is there anything you can think of I need to do additionally? I'm just trying out the admin(http://capecodbay.capecodgis.com/admin/) Maybe delete all of the admin tables and do a syncdb?

thanks in advance

A 500 error is a problem with the code itself.

Don't perform any action without actually finding the error so you know what the problem is, simply deleting things won't help unless they are the cause.

You can enable DEBUG = True in settings.py and than restart apache to get the complete track-back. With the complete Track-back debug the code as you would when you are writing it.

Keep in mind Django keeps a Version history Release Notes which will aid you in knowing what was changed between versions. This is a process you must perform on every Django upgrade.
