Setup byteflow

  • Download: hg clone
  • Create file from example in same dir and modify accordingly to your wishes. You can read help in Django docs.
  • If you are using mysql or postgres, create user and database.
  • Run ./ syncdb (it is located in byteflow directory)
  • Then just follow any (1, 2, anything else) tutorial on Django install. We're recommending use of apache + mod_wsgi as most stable and fastest setup.


  • Common mistake - if you are using SQLite, make sure the database and its parent directory are writable by the user which runs Byteflow itself (mod_python installations runs as Apache user).
  • Read about Debug mode to be prepared - you must configure your web-server.
