Django project migrate django.db.utils 1146 Table xx doesn't exist

I downloaded source for an existing (working) project from git, and followed the steps in DeployExistingDjangoProject. All seems ok, until I get to ./ migrate, where I keep getting an error saying django.db.utils.ProgrammingError: (1146, "Table 'ibowditch$kvbfb.personnel_member' doesn't exist"). This is the first model in my I thought migrate would create models for me, but it doesn't seem to do that. The error log says: Invalid HTTP_HOST header: ''. You may need to add u'' to ALLOWED_HOSTS I tried adding ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['' ] to my, but that didn't fit it, nor did ['*'] I'm running python 2.7 in a virtual environment called personnel-virtual-env. Any suggestions on how I can fix this? Thanks, IanB

Are you sure you have migration files for the model? ./ migrate runs existing migrations, but it doesn't create them -- you use ./ makemigrations for that.
