How can I install the newer numpy 1.6 version? Currently, 1.5.0 is installed for Python 2.7..

Are Python 3rd party libraries installed per Application? And what Python instance does a Django app use? (i.e., how can I access this new numpy 1.6 version from a Django app)

Hi,

You can take a look at this post in our old forums, which includes instructions on how to install numpy in your user space. You can also check our documentation on installing Python packages in general.

When you install packages for a specific path, they would be available under ~/webapps/<appname>/lib/pythonX.Y/

You could also instlal them under ~/lib/pythonX.Y/. Generally, they need to be on the Python search path for your app to find them. I'd suggest that you read our full documentation on Python for a full description on how this works.

thanks, it works! Do you happen to know if lapack and atlas are installed on the machines? I now just compiled and installed numpy without paying attention to lapack and atlas.

Yes atlas and lapack are installed on the system-wide version installed.
