Create a super user in Django
October 17, 2020 ‐ 1 min read
If you want to login to the Django admin site you need a user with
is_superuser set to true. You can create a user with the super user permissions by utilizing the
createsuperuser command. This will prompt you for the required inputs for a user.
$ python manage.py createsuperuser Username (leave blank to use 'koen'): admin Email address: email@example.com Password: ********* Password (again): ********* Superuser created successfully
Using this user account you should able to login to the Django admin site. It also acts like a general user account in a normal Django project. So you're also able to use it as a login on your self-made website.
