This site cant be reached. The site took too long to respond

Posted June 25, 2020 3.5k views

I created a django project following instruction in the tutorial. After initial migration and run python runserver <myip>:8000, I couldn’t access my site. The error message says it take too long to respond.
How do I resolve this?

  • run initial migration with no error
    My IP is in ALLOWEDHOST,
    ROOT path exists, ran collectstatic
    Also added my IP to django_site

    Anything else I should try?

Hi there @cpeters5,

I could suggest a couple of things:

  • Make sure that port 8080 is open for incoming TCP connections via your firewall

  • Make sure that your application is binding to rather than so that it could be accessed via the outside world.

To check that run the following command:

  • netstat -plant | grep 8080

Hope that this helps!
