Using the runserver command, when I try to access to (note the https protocol), the server throws an error:

[11/Sep/2015 16:48:05] code 400, message Bad request syntax ('\x16\x03\x01\x00\xba\x01\x00\x00\xb6\x03\x03k[\xae\x88;\x81\xefJ\xa5\xa5\xa9j[F,uK\xcfb\xf4\x90\xbf\xd9k\x14\x86(w\x00_V0\x00\x00\x1e\xc0+\xc0/\xc0')

I don't know if there are limitations about having a local server supporting the HTTPS protocol, but Django should at least throw a nicer exception. This error happened to a colleague who modified in his browser a production URL (which only works in https) to a local one, and the error was quite cryptic at first sight.

Interesting. There should be a friendly message from #23398. The friendly message works for me. You're using django 1.8?

You're accessing the development server over HTTPS, but it only supports HTTP.

Version: 1.81.7

I mistagged the ticket first, sorry. We are using Django 1.7, I did not try on Django 1.8 indeed. If this is fixed on master, I think this ticket can be closed, since this change won't be backported anyway.
