Answer questions karthiknadig
@m0tz There were two issues:
"program":should point to a python file. The Python extension picks up the executable based on the version of python selected via the interpreter selection UI. In your setting it was pointing to a directory (your workspace folder).
"args":are a list of arguments that you pass to your python script or module. In your case the args were
[ "python", "manage.py", "runserver_plus"]. This is equivalent to:
/usr/bin/python python manage.py runserver_plus. See
pythonis there twice, this causes the debugger to try to load
How did you find the debug config that you used?
