I want to deploy a new devstack on a CentOS 7 machine. I am encountering an error on for horizon:

cd /opt/stack/horizon
 + ./ -N --compilemessages
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/opt/stack/horizon/", line 23, in <module>

    % (self.SETTINGS_MODULE, e)
ImportError: Could not import settings 'openstack_dashboard.settings' (Is it on sys.path? Is there an import error in the settings file?): No module named backports.ssl_match_hostname

I have the package installed:

rpm -qa | grep backport

It seems a configuration issue, but I have no idea how to fix that. Any suggestion? Tks

I still didn't fix that problem. Any help?

For those who face the same problem in the future, pip install backports.ssl_match_hostname worked for me. For some reason pip install fixes the issue and not yum install.
