I was creating a new project in django. Firstly I installed django in my system but when I run the command :

python manage.py runserver

It does not work It shows a message :

python: can't open file 'manage.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I installed django by running the command :

pip install django

and I started a project by running the command :

django-admin startproject Utility

Why am I seeing this error message, do anyone know?

Did you installed or created any virtual environment during the installation of django?

Your main problem should be you are not in the right directory of your django project file You should nevigate to your project file first. To nevigate to your project file you should run the command :

cd Utility

You can also check your Utility directory by running command :

cd Utility



Then you should run the command:

python manage.py runserver
