Site matching query does not exist


Python noob, as in this is my first project, so excuse my unfamiliarity.

The site was working very well until I clicked "log out" on my app. After that, the website would give me this error: DoesNotExist at /login/ Site matching query does not exist.

I searched everywhere and the only solution I get relates to setting up the site framework, SITE_ID, etc. I think those items on my computer are fine, but I can't find a walkthrough/guide to help me check on them.

Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to fix it? Thanks in advance :3

If you don't have a site defined in your database and django wants to reference it, you will need to create one.

From a python shell :

from django.contrib.sites.models import Site
new_site = Site.objects.create(domain='', name='')
print (

Now set that site ID in your to SITE_ID

Table django_site must contain a row with the same value than id (by default equals to 1), as SITE_ID is set to (inside your
