I am getting this error

ImportError: no module named request

To fix this:

sudo apt-get install request

works in Ubuntu. How do I fix this error in CentOS?

  • Just what request are you installing through apt-get? And what does works mean in this case? Mar 19, 2013 at 12:29

Install pip from source. Then try

pip install django-request
  • Yes it is perfect for ubuntu, but not for centos

  • You need to install pip first and then install django-request using pip.
