Hello all, Please help me with this....
I am having a hard time connecting to my app which is created from the Web tab on the Dashboard. I select Create New App, then I select domain name, e.g. brucewhealton.pythonanywhere.com. Then I select Django and Python version. I assume that I am getting a Ubuntu or debian OS. Normally, on Ubuntu there would not be a root user. Anyway, I then try to ssh to my domain, or sftp.
At this point, after launching a new web app, I expect that I would get an email with the temporary password for this new web app. I never get that email. Yes, I checked spam folders and more and I gave it plenty of time. I tried to search the forum on this topic and found a reference to web2py, which has its own login separate from the login to my bash shell. That forum post also mentioned "if you know your password"... I don't know my password for the environment created when I launched my app.
I try logging in as user root and using my username on pythonanywhere - meaning I expect that my username on pythonanywhere would be created as a user in the environment created when I create my app. I have tried both usernames and the password I set up for my account on pythonanywhere. That password does not work. That makes sense, as I could have any number of applications installed on pythonanywhere and each one having the same password which is the same as my account password on pythonanywhere.
I will try to launch a terminal from the pythonanywhere dashboard. I guess I could from that terminal, create a user and set the password and add that user to the sudoers. After very much frustration for days, this idea just jumped to mind. Should I have gotten an email with the new password? During the setup of the app, I am never asked what password to use? My account password for pythonanywhere does not work to log into the bash terminal remotely.
Please help, Bruce
