Accessing the Django Admin
Django Admin is accessible through a web interface. To access it, follow these steps:
Let's assume your Django project is named "myproject." To access the admin interface, navigate to your project directory and run the following commands:
python manage.py createsuperuser
This command will prompt you to create a superuser account with a username, email, and password. This superuser account will have access to the Django Admin.
After creating the superuser account, start the development server by running the following command:
python manage.py runserver
Now, open a web browser and navigate to http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/. You will be prompted to log in with the superuser credentials you created.
