Hi Eugenio,

I would need to have a look what is going on. But yes local_settings should override settings.
The correct command for migrations is python manage.py migrate ... (instead of syncdb)

best regards

>         • Change your settings.py for using the new database and in case the correct user

>                 • ALTER TABLE public.layers_layer DROP COLUMN service_id
>         • Run the migrations, this should update your database scheme from 2.4 to 2.10
>                 • DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=YOURGEONODE.local_settings django python manage.py migrate --fake-initial
