I am trying to move an account that was using the Python Selector to a new one. Apparently when you transfer accounts it does not bring over the modules installed on the old account. I am trying to install them but I get the following error

I login as the user and then run source /home2/nwcadmin/virtualenv/public__app/2.7/bin/activate

source /home2/nwcadmin/virtualenv/public__app/2.7/bin/activate
(public_app:2.7)[[email protected] ~]$ pip install Django==1.9.7

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/opt/alt/python27/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Django-1.9.7.dist-info'

I have also tried installing the modules via the web interface and modules and it goes to a screen that says Please Wait and never completes.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?
