I'm running the server using python manage.py runserver. And I get this error that I'm not quite understanding how to sort out:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: Settings cannot be imported, because environment variable DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE is undefined.
settings.py was visible earlier and I started getting this message after I added some code to register a few app models with admin.
To give some more info: when I do export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=settings from inside the project directory and then i do python django-admin.py runserver the server doesn't run
