sudo docker run -itd -p 80:80 -v $PROJECET_DIR:/home/django/website chenjr0719/django-nginx-postgres

Project requirements

Make sure you already add your requirements module at $PROJECET_DIR/requirements.txt.

This image will auto install all requirements module in this file.

Modify project name

If your project name is not website, this image will not work properly.

you need modify the setting of uwsgi.ini in your container:

sudo docker exec $CONTAINER_ID sed -i "s|module=website.wsgi:application|module=$PROJECT_NAME.wsgi:application|g" /home/django/uwsgi.ini
sudo docker restart $CONTAINER_ID

About Django static files

  1. Enter to your container:

    sudo docker exec -it $CONTAINER_ID bash
  2. Modify the setting of Django.

    In the Static files section, if your static files are in templates/static, add following setting:

    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "templates/static"),
    STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "static")
  3. Run the following command to collect all static files of your project into a folder.

    In default it will use /static/, you can change it by modifying STATIC_ROOT in

    echo yes | python3 /home/django/website/ collectstatic
  4. If you want to use different name of static folder, you need to modify the setting of nginx-site.conf in your container.

    You can use this command:

    sed -i "s|/home/django/website/static|/home/django/website/$STATIC_FOLDER_NAME|g" /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
  5. Exit your container and restart it:
