Manage.py unknown command
I am a student and my profesor needs me to install Django on PyCharm.
I made a big folder called PyCharmProjects and it includes like everything I have done in Python.
The problem is that I made a new folder inside this PyCharmProjects called Elementar, and I need to have the Django folders in there but it's not downloading.
I type in the PyCharm terminal django-admin manage.py startproject taskmanager1 (this is how my profesor needs me to name it)
After I run the code it says:
No Django settings specified. Unknown command: 'manage.py' Type 'django-admin help' for usage.
I also tried to install it through the MacOS terminal but I don't even have acces the folder named Elementar (cd: no such file or directory: Elementar) although it is created and it is seen in the PyCharm.
Manage.py its python file after you start your project, you cant call this file until this command:
django-admin startproject mysite
python manage.py runserver
And if you want apps in your project run:
python manage.py startapp my_app
First of all, you can't create a project using manage.py because the manage.py file doesn't exist yet. It will be created automatically in the folder taskmanager1 if you run the command below.
You can create a project with the command
django-admin startproject taskmanager1
After that you can change the directory to the
taskmanager1 folder with the
cd taskmanager/ command.
When you changed the directory you can use the python manage.py commando for example if you want to run your migrations or creating an app.
python manage.py migrate
