Ive upgraded the Django version Im using to 1.5 from 1.4.5 several days earlier and since then I was unable to run my app in release mode. Whenever I set DEBUG=False in settings.py a “HTTP Error 500” page is always served but setting it to DEBUG=True will make the app run fine.
Ive found out that now on version 1.5, Django has a new setting in settings.py:
# Hosts/domain names that are valid for this site; required if DEBUG is False # See https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.5/ref/settings/#allowed-hosts ALLOWED_HOSTS = 
This setting is not included in version 1.4 and is now needed in 1.5. You need to add your domain here ex: www.jamesbaltar.com. See this link for more
