Django 1.6 on OpenShift
This git repository helps you get up and running quickly w/ a Django 1.6
installation on OpenShift. The Django project name used in this repo
is 'openshift' but you can feel free to change it. Right now the
backend is sqlite3 and the database runtime is found in
Before you push this app for the first time, you will need to change
the Django admin password.
Then, when you first push this
application to the cloud instance, the sqlite database is copied from
wsgi/openshift/db.sqlite3 to $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR/ with your newly
changed login credentials. Other than the password change, this is the
stock database that is created when
python manage.py syncdb is run with
only the admin app installed.
On subsequent pushes, a
python manage.py syncdb is executed to make
sure that any models you added are created in the DB. If you do
anything that requires an alter table, you could add the alter
GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/alter.sql and then use
GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/deploy to execute that script (make
sure to back up your database w/
rhc app snapshot save first :) )
With this you can install Django 1.6 on OpenShift.
Running on OpenShift
Create an account at http://openshift.redhat.com/
Install the RHC client tools if you have not already done so:
sudo gem install rhc
Create a python-2.7 application
rhc app create -a djangoproj -t python-2.7
Add this upstream repo
cd djangoproj git remote add upstream -m master git://github.com/rancavil/django-openshift-quickstart.git git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master
####Note: If you want to use the Redis-Cloud with Django see the wiki
Then push the repo upstream
Here, the admin user name and password will be displayed, so pay special attention.
That's it. You can now checkout your application at:
Admin user name and password
git push output scrolls by, keep an eye out for a
line of output that starts with
Django application credentials: . This line
contains the generated admin password that you will need to begin
administering your Django app. This is the only time the password
will be displayed, so be sure to save it somewhere. You might want
to pipe the output of the git push to a text file so you can grep for
the password later.
When you make:
In the console output, you must find something like this:
remote: Django application credentials: remote: user: admin remote: SY1ScjQGb2qb
Or you can go to SSH console, and check the CREDENTIALS file located in $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR.
cd $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR vi CREDENTIALS
You should see the output:
Django application credentials: user: admin SY1ScjQGb2qb
After, you can change the password in the Django admin console.
