Installing Graphite on osx Lion

Asked by Gregory M on 2012-05-07

Hi,

I followed these instructions (https://gist.github.com/1968044) to install Graphite on my dev machine but I have a problem when I try to run the graphite server.

Here is the command I ran:

>> python run-graphite-devel-server.py start
Running Graphite from start under django development server

/usr/local/bin/django-admin.py runserver --pythonpath start/webapp --settings graphite.settings 0.0.0.0:8080
Error: Could not import settings 'graphite.settings' (Is it on sys.path?): No module named graphite.settings

Am I supposed to create graphite.settings file somewhere?

Thanks,
Greg

yes the settings.py file should be in the webapp/graphite directory of
graphite.
you need to pass the path to graphite root to the run-graphite-devel-server
script.

so if you installed to /opt/graphite then that would be what you'd want to
pass to this script:
example: ./run-graphite-devel-server.py --port 8080 /opt/graphite

hope that helps
