I am using /virtualenv/bin/python runserver for now for the test purpose. I log to my droplet using ssh from my mac. I did not setup any web server. I have amended the Django as shown below:

Let me know if you need more info.


This issue has been solved.


Thanks for the response. Since I am at work right now I will update this thread as soon as I get hold of my Mac at home.
