Once you've done that, you need to tell Django which settings module you're
currently using. Do that by setting an environment variable,
+``DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE``. Here's how you do that in the Bash shell on Unix::
- export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE='myproject.settings.main'
+ export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=myproject.settings.main
+On Windows, you'd use ``set`` instead::
+ set DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=myproject.settings.main
Note this path is in Python package syntax. Your project has to be somewhere on
your `Python path`_ -- so that the Python statement ``import myproject.settings.main``
