Django version 1.3, using settings 'testsite.settings'

Development server is running at

Quit the server with CONTROL-C.

To test that it is wroking I have tried visiting: but I always get a "Cannot connect" message from my browser.

Whenever I do this lcoally on my computer however I do successfully get to the DJango development home page at Could someone help me figure out what I am doing wrong / might be missing when I am doing this on my EC2 instance as opposed to my own laptop?

Check if you have port 8000 open on the firewall. Go to the security group of your instance(its probably the default one if you haven't created a specific security group for your instance) and check the rules. The port 8000 will probably not be listed there.
