Django tutorial lists wrong 'installed apps' entry

On, the tutorial explains that I should put 'mysite.polls' into INSTALLED_APPS. If I do that, I get an error (when running sql polls)

django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: App with label polls could not be found

However, if I just put 'polls' into that list, the sql command succeed.

NB. I have not used 'mysite' as the project name, but a different string, and used that everywhere the tutorial says 'mysite'.

I'm not sure the tutorial can cover cases of "if you didn't do what the tutorial said to do earlier, you'll need to change this..."

Or am I misunderstanding here?

Hi Martin,

Looks like you've made some sort of mistake in following the tutorial. If you can figure out, please report back with how we can improve the tutorial. But I'm marking this particular ticket as invalid, because thousands of people have followed the tutorial and *not* had a problem with that setting.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
