Description

I am trying to generate an .mo file from a .po file using django-admin.py compilemessages. I am having Django 1.2.3 on Centos 5.4 with mod_wsgi. The issue is when I try to run the command which is os.system("django-admin.py compilemessages") from my project directory which is "/var/opt/project-name", it throws an error.

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/bin/django-admin.py", line 5, in ?

ImportError: Could not import settings 'project.settings' (Is it on sys.path? Does it have syntax errors?): No module named project.settings

The exact steps that I followed is as follows:
(This is from the project directory)
$ python manage.py shell

import os
os.system("django-admin.py compilemessages")

The minute I do enter, it throws this error. I have appended my project path in sys.path still its not working.
My mod_wsgi configuration is:

import os, sys
sys.path.append('/var/opt')
#sys.path.insert(0, '/var/opt')
sys.path.insert(0, '/var/opt/project')
os.environDJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE? = 'project.settings'
import django.core.handlers.wsgi
application = django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIHandler()

Setting DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE in your mod_wsgi .wsgi file doesn't set it on the command line. There's also no reason to be using os.system(). Also, modifying sys.path in your .wsgi file (or in a django-admin.py shell) won't pass through to os.system().

You want something like:

$ cd /path/to/above/project
$ DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=project.settings django-admin.py compilemessages

If this doesn't do it for you, please ask on django-users:
