First of all, I am a newbie. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 which comes with Python 2.7 so I installed Python2.5 in different dir to run Django-Non-Rel on Google App Engine. I did the Guestbook tutorial and now I am trying to add admin access but when I type in correct username:password Django thinks its incorrect. It doesn't even work when deployed to GAE. If you know please poke me in the right direction.
AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = ( 'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend', ) INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'django.contrib.admin', .... )
I also added
to urls.py in subproject directory.
Then I created superuser and synced databases:
> python2.5 xxx-xxx-guestbook/manage.py createsuperuser python2.5 > xxx-xxx-guestbook/manage.py syncdb
Then ran the app and can't login. I created multiple different supersusers always with the same result.
Thanks everyone for trying to help but unfortunately neither of the offered solutions fixed the problem. I have decided to first learn Django on its own and then maybe switch to GAE Django-nonrel, so the question is not relevant anymore. Should I still pick one answer to give someone some points?
Not too sure on this, but syncdb might remove the superuser you just created. Try creating a superuser when syncdb prompts you to.
Otherwise, take a look at the user model in
./manage.py shell. Check
There is some kind of limitation in django-nonrel.
To create a superuser:
Create the superuser
python manage.py createsuperuser
Run the webserver again
python manage.py runserver
