Do you know if you are behind a proxy? This error is raised from the socket package: https://docs.python.org/3.5/library/socket.html#socket.getaddrinfo and could be for many reasons, I've seen it if it cannot resolve a hostname when I'm behind a proxy server.

Are you trying to start the webserver locally, or are you trying to host on pythonanywhere?

Makes sense, but i'm not behind a proxy. I'm just trying to host it locally for now
Hmm, is it failing when you do a python manage.py runserver? Can you try the command python manage.py runserver
Or if you’re on Windows try 0:8000 instead
Yea, so when i do "python manage.py runserver 0:8000" then it gives me that error. When i do it without 0:8000 it gives me the UnicodeDecodeError

Виктория Романюк
@nikochiko yes, the chess is very amazing hobby for mind, and I play in chess sometimes because I don't have partner for this game. Django I have been learning 5 months and today I saw this forum :) I would like to be helpfull in this community :)
Kaustubh Maske Patil
Oh that's cool! I am new as well :D

Hi, I am new here and I am just trying to start with django, but I have a problem. Right at the beginning. When setting in console: django-admin.py startproject mysite . I get : #!c:\users\olga\djangogirls_venv_\scripts\python.exe
from django.core import management

if name == "main":

could you help me what I am doing wrong?
I just completed your "blog" tutorial (great job by the way) and it works as expected. One thing that I'd really like to see, however, is additional of a search form in the blog. Is it something you would consider adding?

This is becasue on one server you can have more than one website and it will recognize this by host

in models.py i have choices in a field-

('APPROVED', 'Approved'),
approvalstatus = models.CharField(("Approval Status"),max_length=8,null=False,blank=False,choices=APPROVAL_CHOICES, default='Approved')

i wants to update value of approval_status field from views.py-

if Splash.objects.filter(ip_address = ipaddress).exists():
obj.approval_status = 'Pending'

i also tried-
obj.approval_status = obj.APPROVAL_CHOICES[1][1]

please suggest how can i update my approval_choices value from views.py.

Also, i'm unable to fetch session id using this statement-
obj.session_id = request.session.session_key
please also tell how can i fetch session key of a user.

@gargyash512_gitlab maybe you need to execute #save method as well

What are the best way to keep track of user session in Django.. Like in flask we have session and cookie ??
Piotr Niełacny
I think solution for the web is the same -- cookies
Mohd Mujtaba
I have studied on google that cookies has many disadvantages and it's better to use session instead .

Hi, I'm trying to run my new Django webapp on pythonanywhere.com, but after following all installing steps it says

ImportError: Your WhiteNoise configuration is incompatible with WhiteNoise v4.0

and doesn't load the webapp.

I'm using Python 3.8, Django 3.0.2 and the latest whitenoise 5.0.1

I tried to downgrade the whitenoise version to 4.0 and 3.31 but the error still raises :(

Hi all I am stuck at a place - I am using a Bootstrapios template for Django and when I try using my own image.png as Logo it does not show up but the .png that comes with the template shows up.Any help please

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has looked into porting the Django Girls tutorial to glitch.com ? they support sqllite and python, integrate with github, support team development, we are thinking this might be an ideal platform to simplify some aspects of the tutorial we found to be a bit fiddly
Changes made in the blog not visible in the python anywhere site . Plzzzzz help

i was trying to use latest django version with pycharm and python 3.6 but although i updated sqlite 3.7.17 to 3.30.xx(latest version) it has same error {have to use 3.8.3 or later version}
can't I use latest version of django in python 3.6?
also, i was following tutorial and i opened my first server and the page said the debug mode is true. so i changed it to false but after that it keeps saying the request resource is not found
how can i solve it?
I am at "Django Installation" of the Django tutorial, I am changing "Execution Policy" at powershell to intall virtual environment. I got the message: changing policy might expose you to the security risks described in the ......" Is it OK to proceed? any hints?

@choi-seung-min According to the official django homepage (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/3.0/releases/3.0/), Django 3.0.2 should be compatible with python 3.6, though they recommend using 3.8. I'm not sure about what the error you get in Pycharm is about. If you're comfortable with using the command line/terminal, then maybe you could try creating and running a django project without PyCharm? I've had trouble with PyCharm sometimes (probably because I don't understand it well enough), things like interpreter and virtual environment settings that lead to unexpected behavior.

About the debug mode: Just turn debug mode on again (DEBUG = True) in settings.py. It's best to leave debug mode on unless the tutorial says otherwise. Debug mode is great during production, it's only if you would make a live site that other people are to visit that you'll have to make sure it's off.
