DataPusher Installation:

#create a virtualenv for datapusher
sudo virtualenv /usr/lib/ckan/datapusher

#create a source directory and switch to it
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/ckan/datapusher/src
cd /usr/lib/ckan/datapusher/src

#clone the source (always target the stable branch)
sudo git clone -b stable

#install the DataPusher and its requirements
cd datapusher
sudo /usr/lib/ckan/datapusher/bin/pip install -r requirements.txt
sudo /usr/lib/ckan/datapusher/bin/python develop

#copy the standard Apache config file
