Beta Development Setup - Error


I get the following error. Will send you more of the error messages if required:

File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/”, line 632, in resolve
raise VersionConflict(dist,req) # XXX put more info here
VersionConflict: (setuptools 3.3 (/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages), Requirement.parse(‘setuptools>=11.3’))

Please run sudo pip install --upgrade setuptools

You have very older version of setuptools installed on your machine.

Hope that solves the issue you are facing with Beta setup script.


Hi Shreyas,

Yep it did. Thanks much. But I got into the following problems:

When I run bench new-site site1.local it asks me for the MS SQL Root Password. But when I enter the password (or at least what I think is the password), it;s giving me an access error.

Then when I do bench start it all seems okat, but when I point my browser to localhost:8000 I get the error ./localhost/site_config.json does not exist

I’m very close I think, just need a bit more guidance to get started.
