Required packages ----------------- To run the PyPI software, you need Python 2.5+ and PostgreSQL Quick development setup ----------------------- Make sure you read and you have a working PostgreSQL DB. Make sure your config.ini is up-to-date, initially copying from config.ini.template. Change CONFIG_FILE at the begining of pypi.wsgi, so it looks like this:: CONFIG_FILE = 'config.ini' Then, you can create a development environment like this, if you have virtualenv installed:: $ virtualenv --no-site-packages . $ pip install -r requirements.txt Then you can launch the server using the pypi.wsgi script:: $ python pypi.wsgi Serving on port 8000... PyPI will be available in your browser at http://localhost:8000 Database Setup -------------- To fill a database, run pkgbase_schema.sql on an empty Postgres database. Then run tools/demodata to populate the database with dummy data. For testing purposes, run tools/mksqlite to create packages.db. Set [database]driver to sqlite3, and [database]name to packages.db, then run tools/demodata to populate the database. PyPI Requires the citext extension to be installed. TestPyPI Database Setup ----------------------- testpypi runs under postgres; because I don't care to fill my head with such trivialities, the setup commands are: createdb -O testpypi testpypi psql -U testpypi testpypi <pkgbase_schema.sql Restarting PyPI --------------- PyPI has 2 different pieces that need started, web server and the task runner. # Restart the web server $ /etc/init.d/pypi restart # Restart the task runner $ initctl restart pypi-worker Clearing a stuck cache ---------------------- Users reporting stale data being displayed? Try: curl -X PURGE (where the URL is the relevant one to the issue, I presume) To see what fastly thinks it knows about a page (or how it's getting to you) try: curl -I -H 'Fastly-Debug: 1'
