In order to debug maas, I ran the following command:

$ cd /usr/share/pyshared/maas
$ sudo python runserver (IP):8888 --settings=maas.settings

After that, I typed the url 'http://(IP):8888/MAAS/' in a firefox browser. Then the following error is shown:

A server error occurred.  Please contact the administrator.

It seems that server did not find homepage 404.html.

When I check with url http://(IP):8000(Not 8888)/MAAS/', number of nodes are increased 2 times when runserver is running.

Could you let me know how to debug maas/maasserver using pdb and django runserver ?

Thanks in advance,

Your best bet is probably to enable the debugging options in /etc/maas/

What version of MAAS are you using?
