Createsuperuser timeout

I have my Django backend deployed, I’m not running into any errors. When I run the command python createsuperuser it keeps timing out. I’ve tried with venv and without. Also, I tried python3 createsuperuser. Is this an issue on my end?


I’ve replied to the ticket you also opened, let’s keep the conversation in one place (on the ticket) for now.


This used to happen to me too.
You HAVE to upgrade your Web Service plan to ‘standard’, because the free tier only gives you .5 gb of ram, and the web service runs at .485 gb of ram by default when idle, when you use the createsuperuser command in the shell, the ram usage spikes to 1 gb, and then shuts down due to using too much ram.
Upgrade to standard and try it out in shell again, I guarantee it will work. You can always downgrade back to the free tier right after.
