My next step into django made me realize that I do not have access to the admin panel, turns out that I need to create a cuper user first.
Right away when trying to setup the superuser I ran into this issue
django.db.utils.OperationalError: no such table: auth_user
Back to the tutorial
tells me that I need to run migrations to setup some tables for the
django.contrib.admin being one of them.
python manage.py migrate
yes I am still running remote on from my chromebook.
python manage.py createsuperuser
The super user has been created.
My next issue trying to run off of a separate domain was a cross site request forgery error.
Since this is a valid domain that we are hosting the app from we need to tell
Django that this is safe. We can do this again in the
settings.py, but this
time the variable we need is not there out of the box and we need to add it.
CSRF_TRUSTED_ORIGINS = ['https://localhost.waylonwalker.com']
And we are in, and welcomed for the first time with this django admin panel.
You might find these settings helpful as well if you are trying to run your site on a remote host like aws, digital ocean, linode, or any sort of cloud providor. I had it running in my home lab while I was out of the house and ssh'd in over with a chromebook.
