ImportError: No module named site ImportError: No module named site ImportError: No module named site
A Google search brought up that it’s a Python module issue. I did a
“locate site” and found site.pyc.
In my apache2 based setup, I had my Python code (for Django) using a virtualenv.
A Dropbox Gotcha
Recently, the virtualenv directory, “env”, had been damaged by Dropbox’s sync. It just refused to sync that directory correctly – and it was damaging it everywhere – so I switched to using the Dropbox selective sync feature and removed ‘env’ from the sync.
The fix was to create a new virtualenv, called “env”, and use pip to install the packages there. You need to keep a list of packages and installation instructions, because this can happen.
