First off, the dev server should never be used for anything but development.
It is single-threaded and can only handle one request at a time. That means
simultaneously, and if one client is rendering a diff, everything else is
That said, manage.py runserver should still work. If the pages aren't
rendering, it's likely due to not finding the media files. The first thing
to check is that you're running a modern SVN. For a short time (about a
week, maybe?), runserver was using the wrong directory for media files.
The second thing to check is that you have DEBUG=True in settings_local.py,
so that runserver will serve the media files.
If this is indeed for production use, I must stress again, don't use
runserver. It's not the correct solution and will cause you nothing but
headaches. We should instead find out what's not working with your Apache
install/configuration and get that working.
