I am following the part 1 of the tutorial, on a Windows XP SP2 machine.

I had no problems until I tried to run the command init --settings=myproject.settings.main

The error I got:

C:\myproject> init --settings=myproject.settings.main
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\django_src\django\bin\", line 115, in ?
  File "C:\django_src\django\bin\", line 69, in main
  File "C:\Python24\lib\site-packages\django\core\", line 289, in i
    from django.core import db, meta
  File "C:\Python24\lib\site-packages\django\core\db\", line 16, in ?

    from django.conf.settings import DATABASE_ENGINE
  File "C:\Python24\lib\site-packages\django\conf\", line 34, in ?
    raise EnvironmentError, "Could not import %s '%s' (is it on sys.path?): %s"
EnvironmentError: Could not import DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE '
in' (is it on sys.path?): No module named myproject.settings.main

I also tried to set the environment variable DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE but got the same error message.

I am using the svn version from 4.aug.2005

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

This is because your settings module is not in PYTHONPATH (it says so in the error message). Please don't use the ticket system for support questions; make a post to django-users or ask on IRC.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
