Question

Deployment command

As I was following the https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-deploy-django-to-app-platform manual I noticed that the build command is not provided, it just says it has to point to as {project-name}.wsgi file, which was never referred before.
As i did everything my build crashed with the error: Command not found, which is obvious, because I don’t know which build command to provide.
Please advice.

Hey there!

That tutorial does use Gunicorn which would require a run command for it to work properly. If you followed that tutorial as written then your project should be named: django_app.wsgi and you would set the run command to: gunicorn --worker-tmp-dir /dev/shm django_app.wsgi If you named your project something else then you would update the run command to use the correct project name. There isn’t a build command needed. You can set the run command for your app under the settings section of your app.

Hope it helps!
