Python Question

How do I use python setup.py upload?

I'm trying to upload a package to PyPI - but I can't seem to. Trying to upload failed:

C:\pphp>python setup.py upload
running upload
Password:
error: No dist file created in earlier command


but I had already created a dist file!

I then found a question that had that problem - the accepted answer was
python setup.py sdist upload
, which still didn't work:

C:\pphp>python setup.py sdist upload
running sdist
running egg_info
writing pphp.egg-info\PKG-INFO
writing top-level names to pphp.egg-info\top_level.txt
writing dependency_links to pphp.egg-info\dependency_links.txt
reading manifest file 'pphp.egg-info\SOURCES.txt'
writing manifest file 'pphp.egg-info\SOURCES.txt'
running check
creating pphp-1.2.2a1
creating pphp-1.2.2a1\pphp.egg-info
copying files to pphp-1.2.2a1...
copying README.rst -> pphp-1.2.2a1
copying setup.py -> pphp-1.2.2a1
copying pphp.egg-info\PKG-INFO -> pphp-1.2.2a1\pphp.egg-info
copying pphp.egg-info\SOURCES.txt -> pphp-1.2.2a1\pphp.egg-info
copying pphp.egg-info\dependency_links.txt -> pphp-1.2.2a1\pphp.egg-info
copying pphp.egg-info\top_level.txt -> pphp-1.2.2a1\pphp.egg-info
Writing pphp-1.2.2a1\setup.cfg
Creating tar archive
removing 'pphp-1.2.2a1' (and everything under it)
running upload
Password: (my pypi pass)
Submitting dist\pphp-1.2.2a1.tar.gz to https://upload.pypi.org/legacy/

Since I assumed this had to do with this probably not being registered, I used
python setup.py register
:

C:\pphp>python setup.py register
running register
running egg_info
writing pphp.egg-info\PKG-INFO
writing top-level names to pphp.egg-info\top_level.txt
writing dependency_links to pphp.egg-info\dependency_links.txt
reading manifest file 'pphp.egg-info\SOURCES.txt'
writing manifest file 'pphp.egg-info\SOURCES.txt'
running check

Since it said "continue directly to uploading files", I then tried
sdist register upload
:

C:\pphp>python setup.py sdist register upload
running sdist

So since registration is no longer needed, what am I doing wrong with
sdist upload
? Am I supposed to enter my PyPI password (what I'm trying) or something else, or is there a separate thing I need to do first?

I used Linux instead and twine worked fine - there must have been something I messed up on Windows. This has been resolved!

Most questions like this should also be solved once PyPI migrates to https://pypi.org from https://pypi.python.org as well.
