Using the documentation found here:, one may run into the error: "Site matching query does not exist."

The solution is to add a site to your sites table from within the Admin interface. This should be added to the documentation to increase understanding.

If django.contrib.sites is in INSTALLED_APPS and you've run syncdb, you do have a Site object in your DB. If you've gone and deleted it manually, well, lots of things will break. Probably the best route is a separate issue -- adding a slightly stronger wording to the tutorial to indicate that messing with the defaults when you aren't aware of their dependencies is a bad idea.
