VPS / VDS hosting >  Installing Django on VPS

Installing Django on a virtual server is done using a package that includes all the necessary services. Installation is performed in ssh linux console, Centos 7 is used as a server. The latest version of the package can be found on the developer's website Bitnami

Before starting the installation, you need to make sure that there are no pre-installed services on the server, for example, to remove apache, use the command:

# yum remove httpd 

We also recommend to immediately configure the firewall service:

# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

# service iptables save

# service iptables restart

Download and install the package:

# wget

# chmod +x

# ./

The script will offer a choice to install additional tools:
