Remember that you never use
runserver on PythonAnywhere:

cd ~/django_projects/mysite rm */migrations/00* rm db.sqlite3 python manage.py makemigrations python manage.py migrate python manage.py createsuperuser # If needed
You need to recreate the superuser because it is stored in the database
rm command emptied out your database. You can do
this process any time your database feels like it is messed up. But
you have to re-enter all your data.
