Dear Django Team,

I am following your tutorial to start my first Django-powered project.

I followed part 1 ( and I started with part 2.

Please explain (or at least warn reader) that they need to enable the admin interface by updating or any newbie like me will go to but not find the interace and think "hum, I missed something".

Kind Regards,

You've probably followed the tutorial for the development version of Django (future 1.7) and installed Django 1.5.

At the beginning, the tutorial instructs you to check the version of Django you've installed to prevent such issues. Could you re-check?

Please re-open if this happens on Django 1.6 or later.
