Python Django South Auto Error Table Alrady Exists

South, migrations out of order

python manage.py schemamigration <appname> --auto
python manage.py migrate

If you crate a migration and when you run it you get the following error or similar:

_mysql_exceptions.OperationalError: (1050, "Table '<tablename>' already exists")

Also, if you are getting this error when running tests, you might as well just disable migrations when you run the tests: SOUTH_TESTS_MIGRATE = False
