How do I go about installing a PostgreSQL database with GeoDjango (PostGIS) support with WebFaction? I found this thread from 2008, should I still just open a ticket, as it suggests?

Yes, you still need to open a support ticket if you want to use GeoDjango on your database.

You can open a support ticket here or from the 'Support' menu item at the control panel.

Thanks, I opened a ticket, but thought it would be useful to others just to have this information available.

Is this really all that needs to be done? What about the other python dependencies? Is there a WebFaction-specific tutorial anywhere?

Any extra libs, like GEOS, Proj and GDAL, are pre-installed on our servers, so all we have to do is to enable PostGIS on the database.

If you are missing anything, please let us know.

Just a note for those that want to use geodjango on one of the newer Webfaction servers with Postgresql 9.1. There is a bug in Django 1.3 that causes an error when saving geometries with postgresql with the setting 'standard_conforming_string = off' (which is now the default in postgresql 9.1). A patch can be found here: https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/16778
