Hi everyone.
I’ uploaded my project to digital ocean and the static is not loading. I am completely confused why this is.
When I run python runserver [the digital ocean IP]:8000 I can open my project remotely just fine, and the staic loads. But not if I just access the IP.
Does anyone know where I go from here?

  • Are you getting an error message, or does the page just not load? What is the value of DEBUG in yourproject.settings? Can you access the page via domain name?
