Error 500 when I click on tables within admin section

Posted December 5, 2019 1.8k views

When I log into the admin section of my django powered website I am able to see the list of tables successfully, however clicking on one of the tables itself (ie one of the models) I am diverted to a 500 server error and so cannot manipulate the database. How do I correct this?

I would recommend checking out your Django error log for more information. There you should be able to see the exact error that occurs rather than the generic 500 error.

If you don’t have logging enabled, I would recommend taking a look at the official documentation on how to set up the logging for your project:

Hope that this helps!
