Preliminary checks and system libraries

While this wizard try to handle most of the things for you, it doesn’t check for all the proper native (non python) libraries to be installed. Before running this, please check you have the proper header and libraries installed and available for packages to be installed.

Libraries you would want to check:

  • libjpeg (for JPEG support in Pillow)
  • zlib (for PNG support in Pillow)
  • postgresql (for psycopg2)
  • libmysqlclient (for Mysql)
  • python-dev (for compilation and linking)

For additional information, check https://djangocms-installer.readthedocs.io/en/latest/libraries.html

Supported versions

The current supported version matrix is the following:

  Django 1.8 Django 1.9 Django 1.10

See version 0.8 for older Django / django CMS versions support

Any beta and develop version of Django and django CMS, by its very nature, it’s not supported, while it still may work.

djangocms-installer tries to support beta versions of django CMS when they are be considered sufficiently stable by the upstream project.
