django 1-click app does not work

Expected Behavior:

Given I spin up a droplet using the django 1-click app available here, when I go to http://<droplet-ip>/admin, then I may sign in with the credentials in ~/.digitalocean_passwords.

Actual Behavior:

Upon attempting to sign in, I get the following error:

ProgrammingError at /admin/login/

relation "auth_user" does not exist
LINE 1: ...user"."is_active", "auth_user"."date_joined" FROM "auth_user...

The full html of the error page may be viewed here.


Running python3 migrate from the directory /home/django/django_project fixes this error, but login with the password in ~/.digitalocean_passwords does not work. I must manually create a password with python3 createsuperuser.

Possible Solution:

There may be something missing from the script in the 1-click app to migrate data to the db and create a user.

We did not update our migration command after upgrading from Django 1.8 to Django 2.2. The migration issue should be fixed with the current image. Please let me know if it isn’t resolved.

Thanks for reporting the issue! Jim
