Deploy Django - django.config


Provider-Specific Settings

We have chosen AWS as our hosting provider, and Elastic Beanstalk as a service to deploy the Django project, and it has some specific requirements.


.ebextension Folder

It requires that you create a folder on the root level of your project called .ebextensions:

my_tennis_club
    .ebextensions/
    members/
    my_tennis_club/
    mystaticfiles/
    productionfiles/
    db.sqlite3
    manage.py
    requirements.txt

Create django.config File

In the .ebextensions folder, create a file called django.config:

my_tennis_club
    .ebextensions/
        django.config

Open the file and insert these settings:

my_tennis_club/.ebextensions/django.config:

option_settings:
  aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python:
    WSGIPath: my_tennis_club.wsgi:application

Note: These steps are specific for AWS and Elastic beanstalk, but every provider has some provider-specific settings.

The next step is to wrap all the dependencies into one .zip file, which you will learn in the next chapter.
