Create a new superuser

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

You can easily create a superuser account to access the Django admin site by following these steps, assuming that the projects folder is located at installdir/projects.

  • Open the Bitnami Console and load the Bitnami environment.

  • Change to your project folder:

    $ cd installdir/projects/PROJECT
    
  • Create a new superuser:

    $ python3 manage.py createsuperuser
    
  • Wait for the prompt and fill the required information to set up a new superuser.
