I am getting the error when creating superuser because earlier I updated to django==1.8. I destroyed the droplet and started another. I can log in to admin now. I am following the tutorial on djangoproject site and create a polls app. However the docs was for version 1.8. I did pip install Django==1.8, the installation didn’t throw any errors so I thought it was ok. So if I am following the docs on djangoproject.com, how do I upgrade to 1.8. Thanks

Hi! Have you created a new django app (Writing Your First Django App) after creating the droplet? If so, you can run the following command to migrate the database tables and create a superuser:

cd /home/django/django_project
python manage.py syncdb
