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

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?

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:

  1. netstat -plant | grep 8080

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
