My is under/usr/share/dashboard/dashboard/local/ and is linked to /etc/dashboard/ and I made a change to use memcached based session_engine instead of cookies. I restarted the Apache server on Ubuntu.

I see that local_settings.pyc not updated and my changes are not effective. If I remove local_settings.pyc Apache complains that local_setting is missing but it is not creating a new one even after restart.

How should I resolve this error? I'm new to Apache/Django.

See for logs in /var/log/apache2/error.log. There you will see where you are going wrong

There were not any errors in the logs.

Like Jarvis said, check your logs and another thing comes into my mind: what are the file permission settings? Apache/horizon should run as a specific user and can not write the *.pyc file if it's owned by root and only root can write it.

That could be a reason. I tried manually compiling with python -m compileall and copying the .pyc over but it opened up a lot other problems. Finally configured a new env that is working. Thank you.
