WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi, I am a noobie and trying to set up OSQA. I first saw the instructions here: http://wiki.osqa.net/display/docs/Installing+OSQA+on+WebFaction?focusedCommentId=3047892#comment-3047892

And noticed in the comments that WebFaction had an install script. So, I created an account and ran the script. My question: Which of those steps did the script handle for me and which do I need to complete to be up and running?

Thanks

Our install script creates the app and the associated database, and configures it all with reasonable defaults.

It does not do the following:

  • Create the website
  • Create a mailbox and configure OSQA to use it.
  • Create an initial admin OSQA user

To get everything up and running after you've created the app:

Hope that helps!

Thank you for the very helpful, detailed answer. When I go to "Create the site" I see my site listed under "subdomains" Is that right. When I go to my url, I see: It worked! Congratulations on your first Django-powered page.

Of course, you haven't actually done any work yet. Here's what to do next:

If you plan to use a database, edit the DATABASES setting in myproject/settings.py.
Start your first app by running python myproject/manage.py startapp [appname].

You're seeing this message because you have DEBUG = True in your Django settings file and you haven't configured any URLs. Get to work!

Any ideas what I haven't done, or have done wrong?

It sounds like your website is serving a Django application that was installed by our one-click installers, instead of the OSQA application. Edit your site and make sure the OSQA application is selected.

If you open a support ticket, we can check your configuration to see what is going on.
