Hopefully you all can give me a hand with this...
my work flow:

from django.apps import AppConfig class ContactConfig(AppConfig): name = "contact"
the command I am running is in my
compose-start: docker-compose up --remove-orphans $(options)
When I run
make compose-start I get this message from my Terminal:

I know I put a lot of my work flow in, but I am wondering if I am setting it up incorrectly. I have run into this problem before when trying to
makemigrations on my accounts app. the answer to that one seemed to work.
the answer was to change the
class AccountsConfig(AppConfig): name = "capstone_project_website.apps.accounts"
and in installed apps you can see the path is:
I have tried changing the name of...
class ContactConfig(AppConfig): name = "contact"
...and my installed app name to:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ ... "capstone_project_website.apps.ContactConfig", ]
Point being I am unsure what is going on, if it is a directory issue, a name issue or if there is some step I am missing before I
make compose-start. If you could help me with this, and explain what I am doing wrong, I would greatly appreciate it!
Check your django version. If you update your django version to 3.2, try to switch with the earliest one.
