Flask Error: typeerror run() got an unexpected keyword argument 'host'


Question

I built a website on virtualbox with Flask. The website can be opened on localhost, but I cannot open it through Port forwarding, so I changed the code from manage.run() to manage.run(host='0.0.0.0').

The problem is that I am receiving this error:

typeerror run() got an unexpected keyword argument 'host'. 

The similar error occurs when change manage.run() to manage.run(debug=True). I just followed the Flask documentation.http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/quickstart/#a-minimal-application Could anyone let me know why I'm receiving this error?

As @fangwz0577 said in a comment, they solved the problem using manager.add_command. The archived version of their link is here.

Next, create the manage.py file. Use this file to load additional Flask-scripts in the future. Flask-scripts provides a development server and shell:

from flask.ext.script import Manager, Server
from tumblelog import app

manager = Manager(app)

 # Turn on debugger by default and reloader 
manager.add_command("runserver", Server(
    use_debugger = True,
    use_reloader = True,
    host = '0.0.0.0') )
