Django ImportError: No module named middleware

I am using Django version 1.8 and python 2.7. I am getting the following error after running my project.

Traceback (most recent call last):

I have tried surfing the error but in vain. My same code is working fine in other machine.

Answer

Open up a python shell by running python manage.py shell in your project directory.

Run the following commands one at a time in the python shell:

>>> from corsheaders.middleware import CorsMiddleware
>>> from oauth2_provider.middleware import OAuth2TokenMiddleware
>>> from django.contrib.auth.middleware import SessionAuthenticationMiddleware

One of the lines should give you an error like the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<console>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named middleware

The line that gives you that error is the missing module that is giving you the problem.

To find the path where the modules are searched, do

>>> import sys; sys.path

Alternatively, if you don't know how to use the python shell, you could just remove the following lines in your settings.MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES one at a time until you don't get that error anymore:

'django.contrib.auth.middleware.SessionAuthenticationMiddleware',
'corsheaders.middleware.CorsMiddleware',
'oauth2_provider.middleware.OAuth2TokenMiddleware',

Just reinstall the package that gave you the error.

django.contrib.auth.middleware -> django

corsheaders.middleware -> corsheaders

oauth2_provider.middleware -> oauth2_provider
