We don't have admin ... we don't have db.

my problem was actually the opposite: i had to add a prefix to the url
(because i wanted to run django at ofri.shared_hosting.com/django/*
but my hosting took requests from ofri.shared_hosting.com/django/* and
passed them to my apache as if they were requests to
ofri.shared_hosting.com/* . they do this, because then you have a
separate apache for each of your web apps, that thinks its running at
the root. its makes it much easier to configure (usually the default
config works great). but this caused problem to the admin app. more
details and my solution (using mod_rewrite) here:

Saffi - how does the admin app behave in your solution? where does the
<form action=...> in the login form point to? /serve/ping/ or just /
ping/ ?
