deploy django media files from directly digitalocean app platform

Posted August 17, 2021 196 views

I have a django project with and deployed it to digitalocean app platform. Everything is working good, but I have media files and they are uploaded to directory but didn’t displayed on website. In development mode it was just fine.
I know that I can manage media files from amazon aws but I want to use directly digitalocean.

Hey there!

Since all data stored in App Platform is ephemeral those files would be deleted on each deploy. In this case I would suggest you use Spaces to store those files. How to Store Data in App Platform
