Install Django on Ubuntu

As with most packages, you can install them in one of two ways.

  1. Through Ubuntu Repositories
  2. From Django Trunk (via subversion)

If we want the latest features and bug fixes the recommended is the second one!

To install through Django Trunk follow those steps:

  1. sudo aptitude install subversion
  2. Create a folder to download django source ( ex: mkdir /home/joao/sources )
  3. cd /home/joao/sources
  4. svn co http://code.djangoproject.com/svn/django/trunk/ django-trunk
  5. Lets create couple of symlinks:
    • sudo ln -s /home/joao/sources/django-trunk/django /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django
    • sudo ln -s /home/joao/sources/django-trunk/django/bin/django-admin.py /usr/local/bin/django-admin.py

If you want to use Mysql with Django just do:

  • sudo aptitude install mysql-server python-mysqldb

For Postgres do:

  • sudo aptitude install postgresql python-psycopg2

And that’s it! Django installed 😀
