Community site: login faq

Tried to update my OSQA website on WebFaction according to these instructions:

http://meta.osqa.net/questions/5624/how-to-upgrade-osqa/7660

I ran into issues after pulling the beta3 via svn.

After typing

python manage.py migrate forum

I first got an error about not being able to find django.core.management but resolved that by adding a symbolic link to django by typing within my osqa directory at the shell:

ln -s ../lib/python2.5/django ./django

But now I'm getting this error:

Unknown command: 'migrate'
Type 'manage.py help' for usage.

I've poked around some more and what this appears to mean is that south isn't imported. However, I did import it using the easy-install instructions here:

http://wiki.osqa.net/display/docs/Installing+OSQA+on+WebFaction

What do I do next? Thanks in advance! Anxious to get my site back up.

You should first make note of which Python version your OSQA application is running with, and use that Python version when running various commands.

For example, if the Django application OSQA is running on is set to use Python 2.5, you should be running:

python2.5 manage.py migrate forum

Installing South for Python 2.5 to your account is as easy as running:

easy_install-2.5 South
