Your own OSQA on OpenShift

This git repository helps you get up and running quickly w/ a Django installation on OpenShift. The Django project name used in this repo is 'osqa' but feel free to change it.

Create the app on OpenShift

Create an account at http://openshift.redhat.com/ , don't forget to create a namespace and install client tools as well. And ensure you have 'django', 'mysql', 'mysql-devel', 'mysql-python' installed on your local machine.

Create a python application

rhc app create -a osqa -t python-2.6

Add this upstream seambooking repo

cd osqa
