What is Django Admin?
django-admin is Django’s command-line utility for administrative tasks. This document outlines all it can do.

Username: ola Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: Password (again): Superuser created successfully.
Return to your browser. Log in with the superuser's credentials you chose; you should see the Django admin dashboard.
