Hi,

After using pip install south, I thought I would be ready to start migrating my apps, but after trying I received an error Unknown command: 'convert_to_south'.

After digging around in my file folder, I came to realize that South had been installed in /home/<username>/lib/python2.6, but I'm running python2.7 with my django project. What is the best way to fix this?

Thanks!

You will need to uninstall/delete it from your pythong2.6 directory and use pip-2.7 to install it into your python2.7 directory.

We have more information on installing using the various methods here.

What do I do if the pip-2.7 command is not found?

pip does exist, but cant use pip-2.7

Thanks

pip-2.7 is not installed by default. You will need to install it using easy_install-2.7. It will then be installed in your ~/lib/python2.7 directory.

When I try to run easy_install-2.7 pip-2.7, I get an error that says

Couldn't find index page for 'pip-2.7' (maybe misspelled?) No local packages or download links found for pip-2.7

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'clone'

Any thoughts on how to solve this error and get pip-2.7 working? Thank you very much.

You don't need to specify the python version in pip when you are trying to install it, so just try easy_istall-2.7 pip and it will install it in your home directory and make it available as pip-2.7.

Just make sure that your ~/lib/python-2.7 directory exists. If not create it first with mkdir -p $HOME/lib/python-2.7
