Dear All --

I am in the process of migrating a GeoNode 2.0
instance to GeoNode 2.4.

I am following the instructions here:

... and I have downloaded the migration scripts
mentioned on the page above.

At the last step, "create_auth_group_and_update_res.py"
throws this error message:

django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: In order to use
django-guardian's ObjectPermissionBackend authorization backend you have
to configure ANONYMOUS_USER_ID at your settings module

I assume that the problem is a wrong setting in the
"[path]" section of "gn_migration.cfg"

My current settings are:

 geonode_path = /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/geonode/
 settings_path = geonode.local_settings

What would be the correct settings for a GeoNode
installation on Ubuntu 14.04 using the official

Thanks and best,
