Pip Install not installing into correct directory?

The Solution to Pip Install not installing into correct directory? is


From the comments to the original question, it seems that you have multiple versions of python installed and that pip just goes to the wrong version.

First, to know which version of python you're using, just type which python. You should either see:

which python
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python

if you're going to the right version of python, or:

which python
/usr/bin/python

If you're going to the 'wrong' version. To make pip go to the right version, you first have to change the path:

 export PATH=/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python:${PATH}

typing 'which python' would now get you to the right result. Next, install pip (if it's not already installed for this installation of python). Finally, use it. you should be fine now.
