Django IRC logs to the rescue

The 2nd Django tutorial starts with getting the admin interface up and running by creating an initial user account and using the built in development web server. However, after following the instructions quite closely I was still getting Tried all URL patterns but didn't find a match for /admin when requesting the admin URL. A search of the IRC logs for #django revealed that for it to work the settings module must be set to .admin so if you're using myproject.settings.main for the working with the model in the first tutorial you'll need --settings=myproject.settings.admin.
