Hey DjangoWorld,

Have a great day. Today I will show you how to deploy a Django application in cPanel or shared hosting.




#1. First, you have to select a python supported hosting like NameCheap. Then go to hosting and install python in your selected domain, select python version and type your Application root name






#2. Copy the source code and past it in your hosting terminal or connected with SSH connection and set up your required python packed like Django, MysQLclient, Pillow, etc







#3. Go to file manager and you will see that there is a new folder which is the same name as you gave the Application root name. Open that folder and you will see the same as the picture below. Open the and edit it. Change all text
import os
import sys

sys.path.insert(0, os.path.dirname(__file__))

def application(environ, start_response):
    start_response('200 OK', [('Content-Type', 'text/plain')])
    message = 'It works!\n'
    version = 'Python %s\n' % sys.version.split()[0]
    response = '\n'.join([message, version])
    return [response.encode()]

to ( from testdjnago.wsgi import application) and save it. 






then set up your first project 

##djnago-admin startproject testdjango .





Now go to testdjango> and edit it.




change the ALLOWED_HOSTS = [] to ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['', '']


make sure DEBUG is False and add those code in the bottom in your django settings 

STATIC_URL = '/static/'
STATICFILES_DIRS = [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static')]
STATIC_ROOT = "/home/domainuser/path/static"




MEDIA_URL = '/media/'
MEDIA_ROOT =  "home/domainuser/path/media"

save the file and again go to terminal and again use the code below

#python collectstatic

then restart your application. Boom!! deploy is done.
