How do I deploy my Mezzanine site?
I have a working blog site running on Mezzanine in the development server.
I’ve been attempting to piece together how I switch this to an nginx/gunicorn, but there doesn’t seem to be a complete tutorial for this.
If there is a tutorial that explains how to deploy a Mezzanine site using the one-click Django droplet, that would also be fine. As it is, I’m attempting to set it up on an Ubuntu server.
This tutorial purports to explain the process, but has some serious gaps:
For starters, it does not touch installing the Database backend, or configuring it in the Django app. I “solved” this by using sqlite, but that is not a workable production solution, as I understand it.
Further, the tutorial only takes you as far as setting up the dev server.
It then passes you off to this document:
…which contains a “Hello World,” but does not explain how to deploy a Mezzanine/Django site on DigitalOcean, which is currently what I’m trying to do.
Can someone help with this? I’m at firstname.lastname@example.org.
