Description

The tutorial1 http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/tutorial1/ has a tiny bug between the project start and the development server part. At no point they stop to configure the setting, this cause an error for not finding a running database. I suggest to put a paragraph to configure the database before the development server. Or make a note that the following is ok until you configure the setting file:

1	python manage.py runserver  
2	Validating models...  
3	Unhandled exception in thread started by <function inner_run at 0xb78d217c>  
4	Traceback (most recent call last):

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The docs you were reading apply to the Django development version, not 0.91. You're looking for the 0.91 docs.
