Hi, during the installation and documentation in german (see here) I was stuck in a situation for an hour which might be selfmade because I am a total Python noob ;) or which is simply a small docu flaw.
I thought I share this, so the experts can have a look at it and probably apply it to your INSTALLATION file.
1) The folders, your docu says:
directories templates/upfiles and log must be server writable on Linux type chmod chmod -R g+w /path/to/OSQA/upfiles chmod -R g+w /path/to/log
after searching through the folders, I guess it should be:
directories templates/upfiles and log must be server writable on Linux type chmod chmod -R g+w /path/to/OSQA/forum/upfiles chmod -R g+w /path/to/OSQA/log
Still, what is the templates folder?
2) Its pretty obvious once you figured it out, but I couldn't setup the database with syncdb, always got a strange error. Some forum entries said that this might be a problem with the Python include path - at the end it was just the missing Django framework.
So you might want to add a hint to install Django:
sudo apt-get install python-django
3) This one was the hardest point (at least for me), the WSGI script. Your docu says:
import os import sys sys.path.insert(0,'/one/level/above') sys.path.append('/one/level/above/OSQA') os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'OSQA.settings' import django.core.handlers.wsgi application = django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIHandler()
First I thought I had a problem with the path. Then I found out, that the uppercase was the problem. Probably this is different between OS, but for me Apache would only answer with:
os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'osqa.settings'
4) Please use the same example path throughout the complete docu, you name at least 3 different folder:
It would be easier to set OSQA up with just one consistent folder name.
I'd like to end with a big THANK YOU for your work you put into OSQA!

Hey there keleo, well, I guess this is the problem with having developers maintaining documentation, they(us) just read everything from top left to bottom right and everything looks ok :-P
This app went through some serious changes during the last few times, with 3 main objectives, make it configurable from ground up, make it better and make it easier to install. We used to have around 7 or 8 core dependencies, now we're reduced to only two (besides django itself of curse), and we won't stop until we get to zero :-). But everyone missed a very important aspect, the documentation, and I must admit, this was something I did on the top of the knee a while back when I realized it was outdated.
You're giving us a serious warning, OSQA will never be the best q&a app around until we make proper documentation. If you want you can contribute with docs, we have a wiki at http://wiki.osqa.net, you can create an account and start writing stuff if you feel inspired :-P and then when you're finished we can make it public.
Looks like you sorted out most of your questions already, with the exception of the templates folder. It's located under forum/skins .
