I'm new to Django. I think I'm making a simple mistake.
I launched the dev server with Pydev:
RClick on project >> Django >> Custom command >> runserver
The server came up, and everything was great. But now I'm trying to stop it, and can't figure out how. I stopped the process in the PyDev console, and closed Eclipse, but web pages are still being served from http://127.0.0.1:8000.
I launched and quit the server from the command line normally:
python manage.py runserver
But the server is still up. What am I doing wrong here?
By default, the runserver command runs in autoreload mode, which runs in a separate process. This means that PyDev doesn't know how to stop it, and doesn't display its output in the console window.
If you run the command
runserver --noreload instead, the auto-reloader will be disabled. Then you can see the console output and stop the server normally. However, this means that changes to your Python files won't be effective until you manually restart the server.
