Install Django

Installing Django in Ubuntu is quite simple:

sudo apt-get install python-django

Django is installed in the path /var/lib/python-support/python2.5/django

Since I will be using MySQL, I needed to install another package which would let Python connect to it.

sudo apt-get install python-mysqldb

Start New Project

While trying to create a new project, run the following command:

cd /home/me/

django-admin startproject newprojectname

Although the documentation says to use django-admin.py, in Ubuntu Gutsy, you should not use the .py extension. Instead, just use django-admin. The source of this information is a post on Ubuntu Forums: Path to Django Installation.

Google docs is a great resource to back up all my mysql databases using mysqldump from this python script that runs the local machine.

Google docs has an excellent API which can be viewed here , at the moment, it is only available for python and Java, no PHP yet :/

Additionally you will need to download the google gdata client, from here

I ran this code on  a linux server running Ubuntu 11.2 with Python ver 2.7.1+
