I just created an OSQA instance, and I'm having trouble finding the tool to migrate in a StackExchange dump. I tried going to /admin/sximporter, but I got a 404 error, just like this guy.

I believe I have South set up properly, since I can do

python2.6 -c 'import south'

with no problem.

How do I get to the import tool?

Make sure you tack an extra '/' on the end: http://mysite/admin/sximporter/. It won't work without the trailing slash.

Thanks! You got it.

As I am running this tool, I am encountering a few issues that I wanted to document:

Permission problems, solved by:

sudo chmod -R g+w tmp
mkdir forum_modules/sximporter/tmp
sudo chown -R osqa:www-data forum_modules/sximporter
sudo chmod -R g+w forum_modules/sximporter

Conflict with existing questions. Solved by clearing the database first:

sudo python2.6 manage.py flush
