I installed and configured Django using the WebFaction control panel and WebFaction Django doc, and then successfully accessed the administration site for my Django installation.

I then created a test Django "app", using the Django tutorial instructions. I did mistakenly start the development server, but then stopped it when I realized what I'd done. But after restarting the Apache server for Django, I now receive a "500 Internal Server Error" when I attempt to access my Django administration site. Why? How can I troubleshoot this?

Any insights would be welcome.

The best way to find what is causing the '500 Internal Server Error' is to check your logs in

/home/username/logs/user/error_<your application name>.log

thanks timg. The last line of the relevant log says that the Django app I thought that I made does not exist. No doubt I did something wrong in the setup ...
