How to test sub-domains in my localhost?

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

I set up django-subdomains following this [guide][1].

I set my subdomain urlconfs as follows:

         None: 'mysite.urls',
        'www': 'mysite.urls',
        'shop': '',
        'blog': ''

Everything works nicely, but I can’t really test it cause when I run my app on my local host using python runserver, I can’t really add the subdomains. If go to http://blog., then the browser says a server cannot be found. Is there any way to set my server in such a way that allows for testing?

I also have this following line in my console: No handlers could be found for logger “subdomains.middleware”

How can I get this working? If anyone wants, my file can be found here:

python shell

 from django.contrib.sites.models import Site
 one = Site.objects.all()[0]
 one.domain = '' = 'My Special Site Name' #save this id to SIDE_ID in

then you need to modify /etc/hosts file

sudo vim /etc/hosts

it should work

Note: django-subdomains doesn’t has support for django1.10. for that I have made a pull request… so django version should be under 1.9 for now 😃

I did. Make sure you follow the directions on the docs. Adding the middleware before common. Then you must include Django.contrib.sites in your apps and then do run Python migrate. Finally the after adding the settings they provide in the docs to your settings file you’ll need to access the database and change the value of entry 1 in the “django_sites” table to reflect what local domain you have set up. So change “” to “” or whatever you use. This is the ticket. The subdomains will not recognize if you don’t have this site set and SITE = 1 in your settings.

I set this up like 4 times correctly since I posted this. So message me if you have any other problems.
