In this tutorial, I will show you how-to install Django on Ubuntu.

We will frist check to see if Python is installed, this is because Django requires Python to be installed.

python --version

If Python is not installed, you can install it using the following command:

sudo apt-get install python

If Python is installed or once Python is installed, you can follow these steps to install Django on Ubuntu 12.04:

  • Firstly, install pip, which is a package manager for Python:
sudo apt-get install python-pip
  • Use pip to install Django:
sudo pip install Django
  • You may now verify if Django has been installed by typing the following command:
django-admin --version

That's it! You have successfully installed Django on Ubuntu 12.04.
