Mac OS X permissions
If you’re using Mac OS X, you may see the message “permission denied” when you try to run django-admin.py startproject. This is because, on Unix-based systems like OS X, a file must be marked as “executable” before it can be run as a program. To do this, open Terminal.app and navigate (using the cd command) to the directory where django-admin.py is installed, then run the command chmod +x django-admin.py.
Note that the "chmod +x django-admin.py" command will probably need "sudo", which should be mentioned.
Of course, on wonders why the installer couldn't do this automatically, but that's another question.
