    Unable to connect to Django with oracle database


      Hi all,


      I'm trying to build my first web application using Django.

      I'm actually referring to Using Python With Oracle Database 11g (under the section 'Using the Django Framework')


      Steps followed


      1. django-admin.py startproject myproj

      2. cd myproj

      3. python manage.py startapp myapp


      4. Once the above commands were executed successfully, the next step was to modify the connection settings to allow the application to connect to the database in the file myproj/settings.py.

      Here i updated the details with our database details


      DATABASES = {

          'default': {

              'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.oracle',

              'NAME': '<our ebs database name>',

      'USER': <username>,

      'PASSWORD': <password>,




      5. Also added the project under the INSTALLED_APPS to associate the application with the project:












      6. In a terminal window when i try to execute the below command from myproj directory:


      python manage.py runserver



      I'm getting the below error message


      C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\Python files\myproj>python manage.py runserver

      Unhandled exception in thread started by <function check_errors.<locals>.wrapper at 0x00000274CA28AEA0>

          cls = getattr(mod, cls_name)

      AttributeError: module 'myproj' has no attribute 'myapp'



      During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:
