I like django, I really do. But the other day I had to reinstall a site built with Django 1.4 and was disappointed to find that the docs for it are no longer online :-(

First hit when googling "Django 1.4":


I didn't think to google because https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.4/ 404s (and it was 4am). At least they're still online somewhere (but on the main site or a link to RTD would have been handy)

Good point. I wonder how you would notify the Django team about simple things like that. They do get commercial backing so I think they have capacity to maintain old documentation as a matter of good habit.

It's available on Archive.org; https://web.archive.org/web/20130113152941/https://docs.djan...

But I strongly recommend you update ASAP, as v1.4 is likely to be riddled with security holes...

Your best option is to go to this page to understand the upgrade process, https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.2/howto/upgrade-version/

All information you need to upgrade is on that page, read it carefully.
