Django-Python stupid question regarding Uploading a script

  • Posted June 22, 2014

I bought a script recently that is based on Django and Python. The PDF Documentation that came with the script wasn’t as advertised, and I need a little help getting this thing installed

  1. The PDF tells be to upload the script ZIP file into something like “/home/xxx/www/”.

  2. However, the Digital Ocean Application Droplet Creation for Django leaves me with a folder called “django_project” when I log in to my D.O. Droplet through SFTP.

If someone could give me a quick answer on where to upload this ZIP file in order to proceed with the installation, I would very much appreciate it.

The <code>django_project</code> folder on the Django droplet contains the default app that is already running. You can simply remove it, and install your project to <code>/home/django/your_app</code> Make sure to update the various configuration files to match the details of your project as well.
