Django on ValueHost servers

Hello, today we will tell you how to install the framework Django on ValueHost servers.


Consider installing a Django application on the example of django CMS .
Web server and database preparation

The first thing we need to do is access SSH:

Control Panel -> SSH -> Set the password and the On flag. (either limited by IP)

Next, create a base for our application:

Control Panel -> Databases -> MySQL or PgSQL to choose from
We remember the name of the database, password, type, and address of the database server.

Create a virtual server:

Control Panel -> Web Servers -> Create New:
Server Applications -> Python (mod_wsgi)
Root folder -> django_data
Server name -> mydomain.ru
Enable accelerator return static content -> On.
.htaccess -> On

Application installation

While the settings for the new server are applied (it takes no more than
half an hour, you can see the status of the Control Panel ->
Home ), create an application on the server.

Using any SSH client, we go to the server:

ssh my_admin_login@mydomain.ru


my_admin_login - your admin login
mydomain.ru - Your domain or technical address of the server

After entering the password (we set it at the very beginning), we perform the following

# django-admin.py startproject django_app


django_app - Django application directory

Copy the django CMS distribution:

#cp -R /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django_cms-2.0.2-py2.6.egg/*~/django_app

Or download the latest version and unpack the contents in
~ / django_app directory

Copy the sample CMS configuration from the distribution:

#cp -R ~ / django_app / example / * ~ / django_app /

Configuring the configuration by editing the file
~ / django_app / settings.py :

DATABASE_ENGINE = database type: mysql or postgresql
DATABASE_USER = Password specified during database creation
DATABASE_HOST = Database Server Address
MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join (PROJECT_DIR, 'cms / media /')
ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX = '/ media_admin /'

AT   INSTALLED_APP commenting line:


It should turn out like this:

# 'south',

Save the file and execute the command from the command line:

#python ~ / django_app / manage.py syncdb

We answer the questions:

You just installed Django's auth system. Would you like to create one now? (yes / no): yes
Username (Leave blank to use 'example'): Admin Login
Email address: admin email
Password: Admin Password
Password (again): Confirm Password

At this point, the web server settings have already been applied in the home
The directory has created the django_data web server directory .

Create the ~ / django_data / index.wsgi handler of the following

import os, sys root_path = os.path.abspath(os.path.split(__file__)[0])
sys.path.append(root_path+'/..') sys.path.append(root_path) os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'django_app.settings'

import django.core.handlers.wsgi
application = django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIHandler()

Making the handler executable:

#chmod 500 ~ / django_data / index.wsgi

We inform the web server that all requests must be processed by django when
help ~ / django_data / .htaccess

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.wsgi/$1 [L,QSA]

Copy media content for admin panel:

#cp -R
~ / django_data / media_admin

Everything, CMS is installed, go to the address specified in the server name and
log in with administrator login and password.
