Hi all,

The url to <myusername>.webfactional.com showed a default django home page. After ssh'ing into the machine the very first time, I found that there is a "django" webapp directory already created and thats what was showing the default django home page.

I decided to stop the daemon. So I gave ~/webapps/django/apache2/bin/stop

and started it again ~/webapps/django/apache2/bin/start

Now I get an error: Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, [no address given] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

I can't seem to access the server log. Any idea what is going on here?

How do I resolve this issue?

thanks !!!

The server logs of your app are located in ~/logs/user. You'll probably want to use the tail -f command while refreshing the page to see what the error is about.

Or you can enable DEBUG mode on the settings.py file and restart the server. That would also give you more details.

For reference, we have documented the most common django errors here.
