Creating the superuser account for Django
If you are building a new Django application, and do not select
Yes to create the superuser account after syncing the database for the first time, you will need create the super user account manually.
To do this, run the following command in your application's directory:
python ./manage.py shell
Then enter the following python code:
from django.contrib.auth.create_superuser import createsuperuser createsuperuser()
For version 1.0 of Django you will need to run the following command instead:
python ./manage.py createsuperuser
You will now be prompted to enter the username, email and password for the new account.
