Hi there @akshaykoshti401,

Can you share the exact database configuration that you are using in your settings.py file?

Usually, in order to configure SQLite with Django, you need to do the following:

  • First install SQLite:
sudo apt install sqlite3
  • Update your settings.py and adjust these 2 lines:
DATABASE_NAME = '/path/to/your/project/yourdb'
  • Then run your migrations
python manage.py migrate

Another thing that I could suggest is, rather than using SQLite is to use PostgreSQL, you can take a look at this step by step tutorial on how to configure that:


Hope that this helps!
